Volunteers Fundacion La Mision

La Misión is far more than medical clinics. La Misión welcomes interns and volunteers of all different kinds. You do not need to have any medical or dental background to assist in the clinics and day‐to‐day duties. All we ask for is that you have a heart ready to serve the Lord and Guatemala! There are a variety of outreach programs and opportunities available for individuals or teams of volunteers. Below is a list of possible opportunities.


La Misión welcomes interns from a variety of backgrounds. Whether you do human resource development or are studying pre-med, we would love to have you serve with our team. While you are interning, you will have the opportunity to do some or all of the following:

  • Medical: assisting our doctors or dentists with patients. (Varies upon capabilities.)
  • Travel to clinic locations and assist team members with duties.
  • Administration: assist administrative staff in the office or schools.
  • Rural schools: administration, teaching, arts and crafts, children’s activities, etc.
  • Construction: carpentry, painting, electrical, etc.
  • Water filtration: assisting with and instructing on usage of portable water filters.
  • Agriculture: building gardens or compost bins, planting, etc.

    Short Term Volunteers:

    We welcome volunteers of all trades and backgrounds! Each person has a special gift that can be used to further the ministry La Misión. There are many opportunities to serve in the following capacities:

  • Medical specialists: It is always a blessing to have medical personnel join us in our traveling medical clinics.
  • Individual volunteers: It is not required that every volunteer come on a team. We have families with hearts to host individual volunteers while they serve with the clinic. Individual volunteers can serve on medical clinic trips and in the office as well.
  • Teams: During clinic season and throughout the year we are blessed to have teams of various sizes join us. We take extra care to ensure the location and work will compliment the members of each team. It is always a blessing to serve with many hands and hearts for the kingdom of God!

    Bilingual volunteers will be able to minister more directly to the people of Guatemala. You will have opportunity to counsel, bring the good news, and help inspire and/or support young people in their studies. Also, English instruction is always a need in rural village schools throughout Guatemala.


    Non‐bilingual volunteers will be able to help out in many areas as well. The language barrier may be difficult at times but smiles and hugs are universal ways to communicate love to the Guatemalan people. A servant’s heart goes a long way to reach across language barriers.
