Culture, Customs and Social Reality

In addition, five hours of intensive language instruction one- on - one, students learn about Guatemalan culture, customs, history and social reality through daily activities including social, political and cultural conferences.

Our extensive contacts with different organizations and people who allow the school presents lectures on topics such as the role of women in the armed conflict, the process of reintegration into civil society in Guatemala, Mayan symbolism and textile history, role of unions in Guatemala, and lots more.

Visits out of school are held twice a week, and the pleasure and education are mixed. A trip we offer Georginas Fuentes, a beautiful set of volcanic pools in a forest above Xela hot springs; next visit could present a project or educational community radio station outside of Xela. Saturday service time for a longer trip, like climbing the nearby Santa Maria volcano, in collaboration with a group of young K'iche ' in the environmental project supported by the Brotherhood, visiting Mayan ruins, or hiking.
