What is Work Exchange and How Does It Work?

Volunteering Abroad & Work Exchange

Are you motivated and driven to contribute toward a bigger purpose? Do you have skills you feel could help us elevate Our Purpose?

We are looking for talent and skills to help us with different projects to support our local community.
The hostel only employs locally, and we only offer work exchange and volunteering opportunities to likeminded people who will help us with projects that will benefit our community or help us fulfill our purpose.

Pay It Forward: Volunteer While Traveling

Our guests are always invited to join us when volunteering within our community. You can volunteer with us together at the Asilo de Fray Rodrigo. We normally help to serve breakfast, feed the elderly patients, take some patient in wheelchairs for a walk in the park or simply lend an open ear. For every 10 accumulated hours our guests volunteer with us, we give a free night to a fellow traveler. You pay it forward to our community, and we pay it forward to the backpacker community. It’s a win-win!

We are happy to connect you to other opportunities as well, depending on your skill set and background. There are many projects like Brillo de Sol, ECO Farms Guatemala, Garden of Hope who accept short-term volunteers.
