Volunteer with Long Way Home

Long Way Home needs help from people just like you!  We accept volunteers to help construct our school in San Juan Comalapa for long or short periods of time, and individuals and groups are welcome.

Our volunteer program is very popular.  It is possible for us to accommodate last minute applications, but it is best to plan your time with us in advance.  Our application process is crucial to giving you the best possible volunteer experience.

Volunteer activities cover a wide spectrum of construction at the school: pounding tires, plastering walls, teaching English, creating art, and more. We accept volunteers with a variety of skill sets and proficiencies… just bring a positive attitude!

You should come prepared to work hard (7am – 4pm, Mon-Fri), contribute to a project that will change a community, meet people with common interests and passions, and immerse yourself a new culture.

Ensure you have read the Volunteer Manual for all the information you might need, prior to volunteering, including our fee structure. For reference, our base price for individuals is $75USD/week. Housing choices affect this program fee. Group prices vary per person depending on length of stay, meal and excursion options. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator for more information.

To volunteer, please fill in the application form, and we will be in contact!
