Corporate Volunteering

Engaging staff with your charity partner is an important part of any CSR program. It not only creates a greater impact on your supported project but broadens the experiences and skill set of your employees.

Our corporate volunteering program facilitates a deeper learning experience about life in Guatemala, community sustainability, and agricultural economy at the grassroots level. In turn, volunteers provide support to poverty-reducing sustainable projects. We strive for a collaborative experience between volunteers and the families and communities with whom we work.

What corporate volunteering opportunities do we offer? From breaking a sweat while working on a construction project or helping the farmers pick their coffee on the slopes of Volcan Agua to delivering training in the community, we have a wide variety of volunteering opportunities available.
