Study or Vounteer with INEPAS Guatemala

Attention students, if you’re interested in learning Spanish, volunteering abroad, or doing an internship with a development program- Listen up!

INEPAS Guatemala is a self-sustaining non-profit organization which was founded in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. It is fully recognized by the Guatemalan government for performing a range of social, legal, and humanitarian projects within the framework of developing rural communities in and around Quetzaltenango. which offers a variety of programs based on your interest.

The Language Immersion Program: for those whose primary aim is to learn Spanish.

This is tailored to meet the needs of the individual, comprising of structured, intensive one-to-one tuition daily. Daily socio-cultural activities are arranged according to the interests of the students, including visits to local villages, trips to areas of natural beauty, films, sports and conferences on various aspects of Guatemalan life.

The Service Learning Program: for those who wish to learn Spanish in the context of voluntary work.

This consists of intensive one-to-one Spanish tuition each weekday morning and in the afternoons, students can participate in one of our social aid programs. Working directly with communities increases the desire and motivation to learn the Spanish language, whilst the classroom time enables participants to be more effective in their work in those communities. Thus both occupations complement and enhance each other.

Voluntary Internships: both in Social Projects and as an InternationalCo-ordination Assistant. More information about these can be found on our website.

This may be for gap-year students of social work, education, teaching or psychology, or for students seeking experience in administration, marketing or tourism within a development organization.

As a non profit-making organization, we rely heavily on independent sources of promotion and would therefore greatly appreciate your displaying of this letter and poster in an appropriate place. Thank you for taking the time to read this and in anticipation of your immensely important support.
