This five-day Snapshot Tour offers a glimpse into the beautiful scenery of Guatemala and the indigenous culture of the Mayan people. You will have the chance to deliver muchneeded textbooks, inaugurate brand new computer centers, and interact with students, teachers, and families who benefit from the Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) while visiting schools across Guatemala’s Western Highlands! 

Whether you are a solo traveler or a group, all are welcome! The Snapshot Tour can also be a fun and unique opportunity for parents and grandparents to volunteer with your families (kids ages 10+ welcome), reinforcing the value of service through an intentional balance of hard work and play throughout the tour.

The GLP makes all arrangements for meals, lodging, security, and transportation.
