Description
Safe Passage, is a 501(C)3 non-profit development-focused organization in Guatemala City. Known as Camino Seguro, Safe Passage’s mission is to help children and families in the Guatemala City garbage dump community break the cycle of poverty through education, emphasizing life skills and perseverance in order to thrive in work and contribute to their community. Safe Passage is a secular, non-political organization.

Safe Passage/Camino Seguro serves approximately 550 children and their families with an integrated program that incorporates healthy living, strong academics, life skills and psychosocial support, creativity, and fun. Most volunteers work directly with students in any one of our classrooms age 3 years-high school. Volunteers can contribute as Teachers Assistants, Tutors in English or other subjects depending on their level of Spanish ability.

Our organization also benefits from volunteer participation in a variety of other departments including Adult Literacy and Social Entrepreneurship, Kitchen/Operations, and Public Relations/Development.

Short-term volunteers are invited to serve a minimum of five weeks. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis; new orientation sessions for short-term volunteers are generally held on the first and third Mondays of each month. Throughout the program year, a variety of positions are also available for candidates qualified to serve in longer-term capacities with Safe Passage
