If you are booking a bottle school VolunTour, 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.
Fundraising online is quick and easy when you use this link. 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.
When accompanied by a legal guardian, children as young as 8 years old are permitted to come on the bottle school trip. If you would like to bring children on a bottle school trip and they are age 10 or younger, please contact email@example.com to discuss further considerations. Accompanied minors are always welcome and will be charged the adult rate.
Single, double, triple and quadruple rooms are available at both hotels. Sharing a room may be necessary, but roommate requests are accepted. Families can also request to room together.
Food allergies of all types can be accommodated on the bottle school trip.

Cancellation Policy: If you cancel more than 4 weeks before departure, you will receive a 50 percent refund. If you cancel less than 4 weeks before departure, you will not receive a refund.
Disclaimer: If Hug It Forward determines that it is unsafe to go on this trip, for whatever reason, no refund will be offered, as all deposits in Guatemala would have already been paid. However, you will be given a credit and priority booking for another trip within 1 year. You will be responsible for any flight change fees if a VolunTour is postponed for safety reasons.
Additional Disclaimer: If, due to rain or other extreme conditions, it is impossible to work on a bottle school site, the trip will still go ahead as scheduled and you will instead visit a community where a bottle school has already been built. Once there, you will interact with children and the community. For full Terms & Conditions, please click here for more information.
