Volunteer in a environmentalist organization

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

This organization was named after the Brazilian environmentalist, who fought against deforestation. The NGO in Cantel also has this goal and works in the rural area close to Quetzaltenango. It has its own cultivation project where they work hard for the reforestation of the hills and mountains around Quetzaltenango because a lot of (illegal) logging takes place.

Volunteer tasks:
- Working outside all day
- Working with new seeds, prepare the ground where small trees will grow, bring the small trees to the mountains, etc.
- Realy varied days; going to local schools, educate the local youth about preserving the nature


In this project, you can choose to work in the mornings or full days, so it's perfect to combine your volunteering with Spanish lessons in the afternoons, which is a nice way to improve your Spanish but also learn about the Guatemalan culture.


A beginner-intermediate Spanish level is helpful (enough to understand the instructions).
To improve your Spanish, we suggest online language lessons with a private Guatemalan teacher.
