Review for Education for the Children USA, Walnut Creek, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came across La Escuela de Esperanza through the Spanish school I was planning on attending in Antigua and decided to inquire about a volunteer opportunity as a way to pass my time after classes. What I could have never anticipated was that my time at Esperanza was by far what I cherish most about my trip. I came into my five weeks alone in Guatemala with the expectation that I would be purely studying, but was instead met with amazing other volunteers who I would become my friends and who I'd end up exploring practically the entire country of Guatemala with. The heart of this organization is absolutely incredible, as they truly seek to propel each of their students into bright futures, supporting them as far as their dreams allow. I can't put into words how much I grew to adore the children I worked with in my 3rd grade class, and just how thankful I am for the opportunity to become their friend. My only warning is that it is incredibly tough to leave, but how beautiful to have found something that is so hard to say goodbye to ( :
