Volunteer Travel With ATC

More information about Volunteer Travel with The Appropriate Technology Collaborative. We have regularly scheduled Volunteer trips that focus on Solar Power and Natural Building. ATC also helps Colleges, Universities and student organizations create meaningful service learning, alternative spring break and internships through our Guatemala office. ATC can help student teams design and prototype new affordable sustainable technologies, and we can schedule trips for student design teams and/or student Social Enterprise teams to work with us at our workshop in Guatemala.

Have you traveled outside the United States before? Have you traveled in a less economically developed country before? Do you speak Spanish, and if so, at what level?

What is your biggest concern about volunteer travel with ATC in Guatemala? Are there questions we can answer for you?

We have several trips per year that can be one or two weeks long. The second week has additional cultural activities and an extra day in La Antigua, Guatemala, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Your payment for your volunteer trip to Guatemala to work on natural buildings, install solar power and help out at a permaculture farm is considered a donation to a nonprofit. Also the cost of travel to and from Guatemala is considered part of your donation. (Please consult your tax professional) Many corporations match their employee's contributions to nonprofits. Does your place of work match your donations?
