Welcome to your journey to become a Life Guardian!
First and foremost we want to thank you for your support, enthusiasm and willingness to coordinate a group of volunteers for our program.
Kalan Kuxtal Guatemala dedicates to bring free, high quality healthcare and education to people living in underprivileged communities; however, it is wonderful people like you and the volunteers, who actually make it possible.
HOW WOULD YOU IMPACT?
Our volunteer program is designed in a way that your effort will have a positive impact on several aspects. For each volunteer event we carry out the following beneﬁts are generated:
Promotion of healthy lifestyles in +40 families
Medical care for +120 community patients
Economic growth for local businesses
+10 job opportunities created for local professionals and community leaders
Development of scientiﬁc research to explain epidemiological phenomena
Social awareness and cultural exchange between volunteers and locals
And, as a plus, this experience will boost your overall CV.
The role of the Group Coordinator is to act as a liaison between Kalan Kuxtal Guatemala and volunteers, they promote our program and enroll volunteers to a specific event; hence, their work is indispensable since we do not have the resources to run a Marketing Department.
These are the tasks that we will ask you to perform as a Coordinator.

For us, the effort and dedication that coordinators do to make a volunteer event a reality is extremely valuable; without you, we would not be able to help hundreds of Guatemalans who live in underserved communities with little to no access to healthcare.
While we could never fully requite your effort, we can offer you several benefits.
Develop and improve your personal and professional skills, such as: leadership, organization, commitment, tenacity, proactivity, creativity, team work and more.
