  • Description


    At this time we are only offering potential volunteer opportunities to fully vaccinated people who take masks, social distancing, and current covid protocols serious. Some of our team members are very high risk and we do not want to take unnecessary chances with them. That means going out and socializing during your time with us will not be appropriate. We fully understand this is not normal and will probably make us not be a good fit for most people. Hopefully this will change in the near future, but for the time being this is non negotiable.

    Potential Covid Quarantine Opportunities:

    PLEASE READ OUR ENTIRE PROFILE BEFORE WRITING US. We are a small artisanal chocolate, jewelry, and gluten free baking company in Panajachel, Guatemala and have the following positions available:

    1) We are in process of opening a new retail space as well as jewelry and chocolate experiences and need help from someone with building and remodeling experience.
    2 to 4 weeks minimum time commitment.

    2) Someone with graphics and product labeling experience.
    2 to 4 week minimum time commitment.

    3) Assist with assorted various projects, general cleaning, gluten free baking and chocolate making. Basically just being flexible and helping out with whatever projects we are working on each day.
    4 weeks minimum time commitment.

    4) Long term jewelry project. Help teach visitors in a metal and glass jewelry workshop.
    8 to 16 week minimum time commitment. Has potential to turn into a paid position.

    5) Long term sustainable cacao and socially responsible chocolate education project.
    8 to 16 week minimum time commitment.

    6) Writing a grant for funding for machines in our factory.
    No minimum, whatever it takes.

    7) Help with a Go Fund Me video and page for much needed machines.
    No minimum, whatever it takes to do properly.

    2 to 4 week minimum and will be combined with other tasks like food preparation, cleaning, etc. and any other tasks listed in our profile.


    1 Which position or positions you are applying for.
    2 What skills you have that make you a good fit for that job.
    3 How long of a time commitment you are looking for.
    4 What date you plan to potentially arrive. This is important, without a potential date we cannot know when to schedule you.

    We get a LOT of requests so please read our entire profile before writing us. Many requests are just spam, that is they send the same request to many places in an area and see who answers. We do not host spammers. If someone doesn't have enough time to read our profile and write an original request, we will not consider them.

    The transitory nature of volunteers makes it exceedingly difficult for us to know when we will have availability. Things tend to change unexpectedly so feel free to check with us anytime. A lot of our volunteers come from last minute requests. We cannot confirm requests more than a week or 2 in advance as peoples plans often change when traveling.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Depending on the country a volunteer comes from, they can benefit from language practice, new culinary experiences, and appreciating the different perspectives of similar subjects. Everyone learns something different with us depending on what it is that interests them. We do many things here. From chocolate, jewelry, cooking and making things, to gardening, philosophy, recycling, social responsibility and gender equity. The more a person puts into their time with us, the more they get out of it.

  • Aide


    We are offering positions for enthusiastic persons to help us with our new projects at Lake Atitlan. Minimum time commitment from 3 to 16 weeks is preferred unless otherwise indicated. LONG TERM VOLUNTEERS ARE GIVEN FIRST PRIORITY for most projects. We have an exceptional project and like to work with exceptional people. If you are mature, self reliant, result oriented, and want to help move our projects forward, we welcome you with open arms. Those who are looking for a convenient cheap way to travel and go out at night and party, or need to drink every day, should not request a position with us as we are not a good fit. A volunteer opportunity at a hostel will be much better suited to their needs.

    IMPORTANT! Food shopping and cooking is shared by the volunteer/volunteers in a vegetarian, gluten free kitchen. We pay food costs but do not shop, cook for you, or clean up after you. We are not a hostel and prefer to host volunteers that want to be part of our team in both food preparation and living situation. Please let us know you understand and agree to this when applying for a position with us.
