About the Journey

*Students, if you are under the age of 18 and will be at the time of travel, you will need a parent present to help you complete the Releases portion of the application. 

Through our partnership with 410 Bridge, this InsideOut student team will head to Guatemala. Among the beautiful landscapes, volcanoes, lush rainforests, and ancient Mayan ruins, the majority of Guatemalans live in poverty, and the country suffers from one of the highest income inequality rates in the world.

As part of the team, you’ll work in a high-altitude coffee farming area and learn about coffee cherry farming, which is vital to the local livelihood. Many children skip school during harvest season, so you’ll have the opportunity to see families working together, each doing their share to support one another. 

You’ll also help with a day of Vacation Bible School, play games and sports with the Guatemalan families, help with small construction projects, and visit homes in the community. You might also have the chance to participate in a coffee-brewing ceremony. Before you head home, you’ll likely do some local shopping and sightseeing. 

Working alongside the Guatemalan people at a locally run coffee farm is a unique experience. The work you do will certainly help the community, but so will the genuine relational bonding you’ll experience as you learn about everyday life in Guatemala. Get ready for an impactful, purposeful, and fun week!
