Our goal is to turn orphans into royalty by investing into the spiritual, emotional, physical, and educational growth of the children that call Casa Angelina home. If you desire to see God do a lasting work in the hearts of our kids and are willing to commit a season of your life serving our vision, we encourage you to consider interning at our orphanage!
First-time interns may serve for 3 months or less, as determined by our Pastors and Directors.
Second-time or repeat interns may serve for a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 1 year, as determined by our Pastors and Directors.
Internships are located on-site at our beautiful orphanage in the Guatemalan mountains of Chimaltenango.
We provide you with housing and three meals/day during the weekdays. Weekend meals are not provided. (We regularly take you to the grocery store so you can make your own food or cook with other interns on the weekends.)
Ready to commit for 1 month or longer.
A Pastor’s written reference.
Have your own financial support (including flight to/from Guatemala and approx. $200/month for extra expenses).
No criminal record.
Minors as young as 16 will be considered with parents’ permission.
Spanish is not a requirement but is very helpful. We encourage you to work on learning as much as possible before coming down.
In good health and not needing a special diet or special accommodations for disabilities.
NOTE: Our interns are required to live onsite and sleep in the same rooms as our children. With the majority of our orphans being female, we are currently unable to accept male interns due to the limited capacity of our living arrangements as well as our standard of only allowing same-gender sleeping situations.
