OUR INTERN AND VOLUNTEER IN BELIZE PROJECTS

Discover idyllic Caribbean shoreline, coral reefs, and lush rainforests, while enjoying the rich history and culture of this Central American paradise.

    Volunteer in Belize

    Home to 150 species of mammals, 540 species of birds and 600 species of freshwater and marine fish, Belize is a nature lover’s paradise. Take advantage of it by exploring the breathtaking Glovers Reef on a scuba diving course, tracking jaguars in the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary or kayaking down the exhilarating Macal River. If you’re craving some down time, take a short trip to Ambergis Caye, Belize’s largest island, and undoubtedly one of the most picturesque locations in Central America.

    During your intern or volunteer in Belize project, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get involved and make a positive, sustainable difference within this awe-inspiring country. Whether you take part in the Teaching and Teacher Development project, Dance Therapy or Marine Conservation, the support of volunteers is essential to Belize’s environment and its local communities. Make an impact over the holidays and volunteer this Christmas on our building project!

    Belize volunteers are based in San Ignacio, the largest town in the Cayo District. Explore this laid back city in your spare time. Visit the Green Iguana Conservation project to learn more about the local wildlife. Be sure to mix with locals and get a feel for the community at the Ignacio market, a site bursting with character and known for fresh, colorful fruit stands. Stop by cafes and street stalls to sample the local cuisine, such as pupusas (stuffed corn pancakes).

    Join us as an intern or volunteer in Belize! You’ll not only have the invaluable opportunity to help improve communities and protect ecosystems, but you’ll also experience elements of this truly unique and awe-inspiring country.
