The purpose of Buena Onda is to connect volunteers with placements that are right for them. Scott noticed that volunteers often ended up in placements that didn’t quite align with their passions and skills. His connections with a wide range of organizations in Antigua and along Lake Atitlan enable him to place volunteers in positions where they can thrive. He was always there as a resource for me when I was planning my travels, answering questions and helping me to arrange housing and transportation. The first thing he said to me on the phone six months before I arrived in Guatemala was, “Tell me what your ideal experience in Guatemala would look like, and we’ll take it from there.” Great job, Scott. If you want to volunteer in Guatemala, I highly recommend working with Buena Onda.
