Love sport? This is the project for you! You will be supporting the work of Associación Donamor which is an independent Christian based organisation working to improve the lives of vulnerable children and adolescents in the capital. As well as working with the children and young people, they run parenting courses and have strong links with many of the local secondary schools.

You will be running sports workshops in the local secondary schools as well as helping the local church with their children's work. This is a great way to support a fantastic project and become really integrated with a Guatemalan community.

How much does it cost?

£950 + flights

We encourage each Step applicant to meet a specific financial target for their time away. This amount is a contribution towards the cost of running the Step programme and your participation in it. We do not want the personal financial contribution to be a stumbling block for anyone keen to serve in Latin America; therefore we look to support those who may find it genuinely difficult to meet this target.

What does your contribution cover?

  •  Orientation before departure (residential)* 
  •  Country specific training and materials
  •  Food and accommodation
  •  Health clearance and medical advice
  •  Project setup and supervision
  •  Residential debrief weekend  
  •  Comprehensive insurance cover
  •  Admin costs - DBS, application process, resources etc. 
  •  £50 towards project material e.g. bricks, paint, wood, cement, crafts/ art supplies etc.  

What's not covered?

  •  Return flights
  •  Vaccinations - some of them cost money
  •  Pre-departure UK travel - We usually book flights from London so you all fly out together as a team.
  •  Personal spending money


We think it is of utmost importance to prepare our volunteers well and so hold a compulsory Orientation for all those wishing to take part in Step. It is a residential Orientation weekend (Friday-Sunday) so food and accommodation will be provided and the cost covered by your contribution target - all you need to do is get there!

Looking to go for longer?

We also run Spring Step teams from March-July. Teams go for a total of 16 weeks with an option to travel after - perfect for those on a Gap Year!
