We can provide – Licensed, independent guides to accompany groups on tours and field-trips, as well as government officials, business persons and academics for discussions relevant to your study abroad program.
If your group is looking for a community service project to get involved with, we can help.
Working with small communities is a fun and rewarding experience; beautifying and making improvements to schools, churches and other public areas for example or helping to establish organic gardens and planting fruit trees are worthwhile endeavours and greatly appreciated.
Let us know what you have in mind and we’ll help get the word out for you.

Study abroad in Belize (for individuals)
Volunteer Opportunities – Volunteers and interns have played a vital role in making Belize Botanic Gardens such a unique and wonderful place to visit. We value and deeply appreciate those who volunteer and consider them to be important ambassadors because, whether on site or wherever they happen to be, they have contributed to developing and promoting our reputation.
Volunteers carry out a wide range of activities and tasks, from helping out with the latest Garden projects to ongoing maintenance, or choose to work a specific Garden area attraction that interests you. We often need volunteers to assist us with school visits and organizing exhibitions for public occasions.
Becoming a volunteer at Belize Botanic Gardens is a great way to visit Belize and broaden your horizons, while helping out and getting to know, learn and interact with our staff and the local community.
