Roots and Wings International stands out in the world of non-profit organizations for its remarkable group of volunteers. The Guatemala office is entirely managed and staffed by the local communities members. The international group of volunteers, who hail from across the United States and UK, supports the local staff in promoting RWI’s mission of local development through education.
The Roots and Wings team is always looking for volunteers who are interested in the cause of sustainable community development, education, and indigenous communities. The ideal volunteer is self motivated, passionate about the mission, and a team player.
Volunteers can be located anywhere, although RWI is especially seeking volunteers located in Guatemala or willing to volunteer at the RWI office in Pasac. Spanish fluency is especially desired.

Here is what some current and former volunteers have to say about their experiences with RWI:
Roots and Wings is a fantastic organization. The team makes you feel as if you’re part of the family, even if you’re only volunteering a few hours a week. I would recommend this organization to anyone wanting some volunteer experience.
It has been absolutely great experience working for Roots and Wings International. I have been working with them for almost an year now. The leadership and people involved in this organization have done a great job spreading eduction in rural Guatemala and I am delighted to be a part of the great team. I highly recommend volunteering for this organization
Roots & Wings International is one of the best non-profits I’ve worked with remotely. As a publicity volunteer, I have ample opportunity to apply and upgrade my skills. The founder Erik is great to work with and allows volunteers to take their projects as far as they want to and as much as they can commit. The organization is fully run by volunteers and I think it’s great that 95% of the donations go into programs. I highly recommend checking out volunteer opportunities with Roots and Wings International.
