United Youth Corps Guatemala—Eagle’s Nest Orphanage

The individuals that are needed are passionate about working with children, connecting with them, showing them love and affection, are willing to work hard and stretch outside of their comfort zone both physically and emotionally.

Once selected, you and your fellow Youth Corps team members will team up with other young adults from Latin America to help plan and teach a day camp with activities that include: the Bible, English, art, music, dance, sports and others. Afternoons will be dedicated to working on a physical work project to help better the orphanage. This fast-paced project requires you to adapt quickly to a changing schedule and maintain a positive attitude when faced with uncomfortable conditions. Classroom experience and proficiency in the Spanish language is extremely helpful.

Responsibilities: Prior to our trip you will develop lesson plans and activities for the children. Once in Guatemala you will teach activities, participate in leadership development, help in the physical work project, and grow really attached to the kids.

Location: Eagle’s Nest is located in Sololá, Guatemala, in the mountains. It overlooks the beautiful Lake Atitlan.

Benefits: The project offers opportunities to grow as a leader, meet the brethren from Guatemala, and build strong bonds with your the fellow international Youth Corps team. It will expand your world. The biggest benefit will be the joy of serving, loving and making a meaningful impact on the children at Eagle’s Nest.

Cost: Room, board and ground transportation to and from the orphanage will be provided by Good Works. Participants are expected to provide their airfare costs and some extracurricular costs, totaling no more than $100.
