Tech2Empower Guatemala, November 15-23, 2019
Apply by July 31 to travel with us as an Advisor for Tech2Empower Guatemala.

Tech2Empower Guatemala is a unique opportunity to learn about and contribute to girls’ education, and to support and advise women making a difference in their community as social entrepreneurs leaders, all while making new friends, building professional networks and having fun. 

As Tech2Empower Advisors, volunteers provide hands-on project support and customized trainings to women and girls in local communities. 

This is a unique volunteer opportunity for individuals working in tech, communications, finance and business to share their professional skills to amplify the work of women social entrepreneurs and to engage with the next generation of women leaders, by advancing girls' education and by hosting a tech fair for young women. 

Tech2Empower Guatemala Advisors will have the opportunity to:

  • Work in teams to coach and co-create (systems, strategies, plans, digital collateral) with local women social entrepreneurs.

  • Mentor young women and girls in career, leadership and tech. 

  • Participate in site visits with local women's organizations. 

  • Build meaningful connections with like-minded women working locally and internationally. 

  • Learn about local history, visit landmarks and participate in cultural enrichment activities. 

  • Learn new technology, training, communications and leadership skills from trainings led by fellow Advisors
