Guatemala Summer Experience

Is a student exchange program that provides tools to adolescents by which they learn and grow through enriching cultural experiences with the diverse people and ecosystems in Guatemala.

How?
By attending a private school in Guatemala, sharing with a host family, participating in social, educational and athletic events, and by taking short trips around the country with a host family. The U.S. host brother or sister has the option to participate in a Guatemalan Cultural Exchange Program. This program can be customized from two (2) weeks to four (4) weeks during summer. We would love to host you.

Empowering their future

We are cultural ambassadors!

FACES is a cultural exchange program between Guatemala and the United States. We build cross-cultural relationships among all of our participants: students, host family members, teachers, and school administrators. Our students also develop academically, socially, and linguistically. As our ambassadors leave their comfort zone and take on challenges in the safe and controlled environment of a host home and school, they and everyone around them are able to build cultural bridges in a highly interconnected world.
