Learning Journey

Want to go to Guatemala? Email Marcella Varley, Development Manager at Reading Village, at marcella@readingvillage.org to learn more about the 2018 trip. Travel by yourself, with your family, or bring a friend.

There’s just no substitute for first-hand experience. That’s why each year we offer you the opportunity to travel with us to Guatemala and see the work yourself.  The safe, thoughtful, and curious environment that we foster on our Learning Journey will change the way you look at the world. We want you to see what we see in these communities full of potential, to meet our partners, hear their stories and be moved by their work. For eight days, you will travel with our staff, work along side our youth leaders, and share meals with their families. This is a rare opportunity to get an intimate and authentic look at life in indigenous Guatemalan communities, see first hand how Reading Village is transforming lives through literacy, and experience your own transformation as well.

“I have never been on a trip where I so intimately entered the culture and the lives of local people.” – Learning Journey Alumni
