Women Prisons Voluntary ServiceGuatemala is among 15 countries in the world where Non-sentenced prisoners make up the majority of the prison population. In some cases, prisoners also continue to be held after the expiration of their sentences. International Volunteer Travel partners with local NGOs in Guatemala to provide mental and emotional support for women in prisons through motivation, and other forms of organized activities. This volunteer work is emotionally and psychologically challenging but at the same time immensely rewarding. Volunteer abroad who sign up for volunteer work with imprisoned women will assist in teaching them to read and write; teaching English, aerobics, arts and crafts and teaching other special life skills
