VOLUNTEER

volunteer

One way to participate with us is to come down as an individual volunteer. You could participate with us for a week, a month, or how ever long you feel God is calling you to be part of this ministry. Your individual talents and abilities will leave a lasting impression in the lives of our children and without a doubt after your time is complete you will return home changed. Come be a part of our volunteer team.

Why Volunteer

Volunteering at the Hope For Tomorrow Children's Home is a gratifying experience which will greatly enrich your life. Below are some of the benefits of volunteering:

  • Use your talents and experience to make a difference.
  • Understand aspects of another culture.
  • Gain a new perspective on International events.
  • Build experience working in a non-profit environment.
  • Learn more about other people and yourself.
"Words cannot express how grateful I am to have had this opportunity to GO and live the Gospel with eight orphaned children that so easily stole my heart."

What can I do?

One of the keys of successful volunteering is matching the volunteer's gifts and abilities with the specific needs of the ministry. It's a win win!! Part of the volunteer application form asks you to list your talents, skills, and experiences to ensure that your time with us is the best it can be. But to get you started, here are a few of our needs and ways that you can get plugged in with Hope For Tomorrow through volunteering:

  • Team teach in our preschool.
  • Assist older children with their classwork and projects.
  • Teach English to the children.
  • Help the children learn one of your talents like piano, dance, sewing, etc.
  • Do physical and occupational therapy with our children with special needs.
  • Assist with churches and teams that come down.
  • Lead and organize a VBS for the children.
  • Be a living example of the love of Christ.

We could go on and on, but the idea is the same. We can use you to help impact our children and ministry here in Guatemala. Read below on how to start the process of volunteering with us.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: The above application form has been created to fill out electronically. It has editable fields that will make it easier for you to fill your information. To fill the form out electronically you will need a program that can edit and save PDF forms. If you use Windows, we recommend the free program, Foxit Reader.
