Book now to reserve your spot on Julie Dahlgren, Mike and Vicky Hranac’s bottle school trip: June 24-30, 2021

Nosotros ♥️ Guatemala!

Come join us for a working voluntourism experience in beautiful Guatemala! Mike, Julie, and I are all former teachers and believe in the power of education. Building environmentally sustainable schools in partnership with the indigenous families of the communities and Hug It Forward has been one of the most rewarding adventures of our lives! The families have shared their hopes, dreams, and struggles, and have the understanding that education is paramount to improving their homes, communities, and country. We are so humbled to think that we have been a small part of their journey to increased opportunity and economic development.

The key to the success of this amazing experience is the professionalism and organization of the Hug It Forward team. They are very diligent in their care for all team members, and they ensure that everyone is safe and sanitized at all times. (Inside joke that you will find out about when you join us on this trip!) I would venture to say that you will not regret making the decision to work and play in Guatemala. We’re looking forward to seeing you in June of 2021!

– Julie, Mike, and Vicky –

Fundraising for bottle schools

You might also like to fundraise for Hug It Forward bottle schools. Fundraising for bottle schools is optional – it is not a requirement of participating in a bottle school trip.

If you choose to fundraise, we suggest a $250 fundraising goal, but some people choose to do more or less than this. It’s really up to you – how much you think your friends and families can give, how creative you can be, and how much time you’re prepared to put into it.

See more information about fundraising.
