Volunteering with us


Working as a volunteer in Central America is both challenging and highly rewarding.  However both Guatemala and Honduras can be dangerous places to visit and so any volunteer would need to evaluate the risks to their own health and safety before applying.

Street Kids Direct works in partnership with local organisations, almost all of whom have a Christian ethos and so do require a level of Christian belief and commitment.  The work with each project can vary and will probably not include working on the streets, as this work is fraught with many challenges for new volunteers and we have to assess the risk involved for a volunteer working in dangerous areas of Guatemala City, especially late at night.

Volunteers will need to have a good understanding of Spanish, both written and verbal, and will be asked to participate in a language evaluation together with the usual DBS and primal background checks and personal references.


Street Kids Direct partner with five projects in Guatemala City and all do take short to medium term volunteers.  Please do contact us if you would like to know how you could come and serve in one of the projects.
