#SpidersGuatemalaSpringBreak

Travel to the highlands of Guatemala this spring and transform your life.

For over 24 years, the Highland Support Project has worked with indigenous Maya women to build resilience and create opportunities. Through our Alternative Spring Break Program, you can partner with the Highland Women's Association (AMA) in transformational relationships that will impact your life as well as increase the freedom, well-being, and quality of life for rural Indigenous communities.

Our programs offer an eye-opening experience through shared meals, community events and days spent working together on meaningful projects. 

We work in rural highland communities that are rarely visited by outside groups. With more than two decades of experience working in isolated regions, we are uniquely positioned to facilitate an experience in real Guatemala. 


In addition to service projects, we provide excellent speakers concerning food sovereignty, women's rights, Maya culture, and social justice.

Cost is $1,100.00 + Airfare. Includes all entry fees, 3 meals a day, Instruction and materials.
