Guatemala Service Learning Trip

  • 2 days
  • Middle School, High School

This Guatemala trip lets you be the change you want to see in this world. You and your students will spend two weeks in Antigua and Ciudad Vieja, where you’ll stay with local families, work closely with the community on a wide range of projects, explore the region’s stunning landscapes and infrastructure, and learn and practice Spanish like never before. With Jumpstreet Tours, immersion is what matters most.

Your two-week Service Learning experience includes:

Here's What's On Deck:

Homestays with local families, where the immersion never ends! The friendships you’ll forge will last a lifetime, and there’s no better way to practice your Spanish.

Speaking of which, you’re also getting 20 hours of intensive private Spanish lessons in Antigua, a stunning post-colonial UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Volunteer work in the community, including schools, hospitals, youth groups and orphanages. While volunteering might not change or ‘solve’ Guatemala, your students will come away with a profound appreciation of the challenges that face developing countries in Central America. It’s such a valuable experience for the thinkers and doers of tomorrow.

Your students can also participate in a volunteer construction project. Sites are chosen based on the specific needs of poorer villages in the area. We simply ask for an additional donation to the community to help pay for materials.

Authentic dance workshops and cooking classes that will bring you closer to the country’s indigenous roots

Guided tours of Antigua, as well as museum visits and a trip to the vibrant Chichicastenango market

Rewarding day trips to volcanoes, macadamia nut plantations and beautiful Lake Atitlán in the heart of the stunning Sierra Madre

A bilingual local Tour Leader who will stay with your group throughout your trip
