  • Descrição


    After being closed for 2 years we are finally offering potential volunteer opportunities again. Covid had slowed down considerably, but cases have been rising again so we prefer volunteers who use masks, social distancing, and covid protocols when outside in town. Hopefully this will change in the near future.

    Potential 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 with set up, organizing, and remodeling our place.
    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) Social media expert. Our business will soon be exporting to the US and we'll need someone with experience and social media expertise for Instagram, Facebook, YouTube Live, Twitch Streaming, etc. 4 to 6 week minimum time commitment.

    6) Daily light massage and physical therapy person.
    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 What date do you plan to arrive? Without a potential date we cannot know if we can schedule you.

    2 Which position or positions you are applying for and what skills do you have that make you a good fit for that job?

    3 How long of a time commitment you are available for?

    4 Have you volunteered with other workaway hosts?

    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 take enough time to read our profile and answer the 4 questions above, we can 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 so don't hesitate to ask. 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!

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    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.

    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.
