ARE THERE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH VOLUNTEERING?

Primeros Pasos is a grass roots, low budget organization that relies on the generosity of our volunteers and supporters to provide quality health care at the Clinic.  Operations depend heavily on donations, both monetary and in-kind. We ask all volunteers to fundraise the equivalent of 300 USD on behalf our organization before or during their time with us so that we may continue to provide medical and educational services to the communities of the Palajunoj Valley. This goal can be met either by fundraising or collecting supplies or a combination of the two. As a volunteer you will become a representative of Primeros Pasos and by fundraising not only will you provide needed funds and supplies but you will also raise awareness about our work here in Guatemala.

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR VOLUNTEERS?

Primeros Pasos does not accept volunteers under 18 years of age. We do not have an upper age limit, however all volunteers must be in good physical shape: able to walk mid-long distances, able to stand for hours of work, etc. This can be discussed on an individual basis.
