About Us

El Nahual is a non-profit, non-governmental organization funded by its Spanish language school. All of our proceeds return directly to the community through our various educational programs for children and adults. We offer English, Spanish reinforcement, art, mathematics, science as well as theater classes to the children. We also teach English at four local, public schools on the outskirts of Quetzaltenango (Guatemala´s second-largest city).

The children that we serve often come from families who have been marginalized by poverty, indigenous Mayan heritage, or rural backgrounds, and many lack access to the privilege of a primary school education even though six years are theoretically provided free of charge under the Guatemalan public education system.

Our foreign volunteers provide creative, thoughtful instruction and activities which these children would otherwise not receive. We seek dedicated and enthusiastic individuals who are motivated to give back to some of the most disenfranchised communities in Quetzaltenango. If you are interested in learning about grassroots social development work through education, want to gain valuable international teaching experience, and improve your Spanish language skills through work with kids, El Nahual has a place for you!
