Long Way Home needs help from people just like you! We accept volunteers at our school site in San Juan Comalapa, Guatemala, for periods of one week to three months. Individuals, groups, and interns are welcome!

Ensure you have read the Volunteer Manual (or en Español) for all the information you might need, prior to volunteering.

For individual volunteers and interns, our program fee for individuals is USD$75 per week or USD$300 per month. This includes a bed in our volunteer house, onsite orientation and training, purified drinking water, kitchen essentials (propane, matches, cooking oil, etc.), and clean bedding every two weeks. Typically, food costs and preparation duties are shared by everyone in the house. We also offer homestay ($85/week-meals are additional) and hotel ($95/week) options. Approximately 50% of the volunteer fee goes toward offsetting our costs to host you (rent, propane, supplies, etc.) and 50% toward project expenses (construction materials, salaries, etc.).
