Organization: VOCES Y MANOS POR EL DERECHO A LA SALUD (www.vocesymanos.org)

Message: Are you passionate about global health and/or education? Voces y Manos is offering a once in a lifetime volunteer opportunity this summer in Guatemala.

Organization Info: The aim of Voces y Manos is to promote youth leadership by providing young people with opportunities to develop creative solutions to improve health in their communities, and scholarships to help them attain higher education. The organization has been working in Rabinal, Guatemala since 2008, and has been leading volunteer groups since 2009.

About the Volunteer Program: During this eight-week summer program, Voces y Manos participants will live in home-stay placements with local families. Volunteers will work with either our education team or health team (depending on interest and skill sets). Education team members will work as facilitators on an after-school program that teaches students how to identify and investigate critical health challenges faced by their communities, and develop projects to address them. Participants on the health team will work to support the implementation and evaluation of a multi-year project aimed at improving sanitation and nutrition.
