Bright Light Volunteers

Bright Light Volunteers works in the very calm and laid back town of San Pedro in Northern Guatemala, where groups can come and create an experience of a lifetime while working on educational and conservation projects that will improve the lives.

Service initiatives include working to improve facilities in local schools and community buildings, volunteering with reforestation efforts, working with a land management group to reintroduce valuable Ramon seeds and trees, and also work teaching English and work skills that will help community members break into the burgeoning eco-tourism industry.

Spanish immersion lessons are available and hands on cultural activities include learning about millennia old ethnobotanical medicine while hiking through the jungle, exploring the area around Lago de Peten Itza, touring the famous Tikal National Park and Temple, Mayan art, cooking, and language lessons, and much more!
