What are the prerequisites for being a volunteer?
You must be aged 18yrs or older at the time when you apply to volunteer in Antigua Guatemala. If you are younger you can still come, but must be accompanied by an adult.

How much does it cost to volunteer in Antigua Guatemala?
If you are not already in Antigua Guatemala, EFTC asks for a contribution of £50 / $75 / €70, which covers the expense of running our volunteer program and the assistance of our Volunteer Coordinator with lodging and transportation if needed. For volunteers who fundraise the equivalent of £150 or more for EFTC prior to their arrival, this fee will be waived.

Where in Guatemala am I going to live?
Volunteers usually prefer to live in the nearby town of Antigua Guatemala instead of Jocotenango, as it offers a wide array of services and tourist attractions, such as cafés, Spanish schools, restaurants, bars and of course beautiful ruins and churches.
You can choose your own accommodation or stay with one of our trusted 'host families' in the town of Antigua Guatemala. They generally charge Q700 (about £64 / US$93 / €84) per person, per week. You’d have your own bedroom and share the bathroom, dining room and living area.
