PROGRAM DATES: JULY 11 – AUGUST 25, 2013
Backpack with a purpose next summer with Operation Groundswell!
Discover the fascinating but tragic history of Guatemala while volunteering with the Chico Mendes Reforestation Project where we will plant trees and clear invasive species. We will also spend time at the Operation Groundswell hub arrive home at the OG hub where we will learn and work on experimental projects, including the construction of ceramic water filters, homemade photovoltaics, water catchment systems, and sustainable food crops. We will also join local tourism initiative Rupalaj Kistalin to clear local trails, visit local artisanal cooperatives, and work with local youth.

As we always work on community-requested projects, our work is subject to change depending on the community's needs at the time we are there.
OG combines meaningful volunteer experiences with cultural exchange and off-the-beaten path adventure, which means you'll also get to explore the Guatemalan cuisine, culture, history, and geography.
