Volunteer Information for Give Kids A Chance Foundation

What services does your organization provide?
As well as over 100 scholarships in India and Guatemala we provide food programs (feeding over 300 kids each day in Guatemala) and support a youth program that has programs for young people in dance, music, photography, fine art, filmaking and journalism.


Do you have any age requirements?
The minimum age for volunteers is 20 years.


Do you require language proficiency other than in English?
A basic understanding of Spanish is needed as the children in our centres do not speak English. You can take lessons in Guatemala and then volunteer after about 2 weeks of lessons.


What time commitment(s) are you expecting from a volunteer?
The minimum should be one month due to language skills. Depending on the circumstances a shorter stay may be possible.


Are there any other requirements for being a volunteer?
You must be sincere, willing to experience life in a developing country without criticism or complaint. You can live in Antigua, Guatemala (a beautiful colonial city) quite comfortably.


Are there any specific skills and experience required?
None - just willing to help in the centres.


What type of volunteer positions are typically available?
Assistance in children's centres with arts/crafts, music, teaching drama, helping with lunches etc. CasaSito also has positions at times in water projects in rural Guatemala.


Is there any training provided for volunteers?
There is an introductory meeting but no formal training.


What are the typical volunteer activities occurring at your organization?
As above.


How will a person benefit from volunteering with Give Kids A Chance Foundation?
Living and working in Guatemala is a life changing opportunity to get to know a culture that is completely different from ours. Appreciation of another culture can never be a bad thing. To give is better than to receive!


Do you accept high school students?
No, you must be over 20 years of age and mature enough to live in Guatemala safely.
