Weather is warm throughout the year, bring clothing for hot weather and the outdoors as well as mosquito protection.

Volunteers need to have their own health insurance and/or pay for medical attention.

Consumption of drugs/alcohol and intimate/sexual relationships with community members is not allowed during the volunteer service. Non-compliance with these restrictions and lack of active participation in the project activities can lead to the termination of the volunteering agreement.

Volunteers are required to buy and cook their own food, during their stay.

Activities change slightly during summer vacation in July and August when summer camps for children and youth are implemented.

HPPB has experience working with local and international volunteers. Since 2010, every year 2 to 6 international volunteers immerse themselves in Belizean communities and actively collaborate in the implementation of HPPB’s projects.

On average we collaborate with 3 to 4 local volunteers in each community. Local volunteers are usually project beneficiaries that are passionate about development and possess the traits of leaders and activists.
