Volunteer in Guatemala


Statement on Coronavirus

Coronavirus has reached Guatemala and there is no way to predict how the virus will impact travel in the coming months. For now, schools are closed and foreigners are prohibited from entering the country. The GLP staff are keeping in touch with each other and with those we serve, as we all weather this crisis from our respective homes.

We have made the difficult decision to cancel our November 2020 and February 2021 tours. Know that the GLP is staying on top of the situation and will be posting updates to our website in regards to the July 2021 Tours. Stay healthy!

Tours are operated by our partner organization, Cooperative for Education (CoEd).
