Construction Crew

(week 1 only)

These crews of hard-working teens and adults will work side-by-side with Guatemalan construction workers and boys living at the orphanage of Hogar Miguel Magone.

This summer, our Construction Crew will be working on construction projects for the new girl’s dormitory currently under construction.  Specific projects will be announced later.  This girl’s home has been a dream of Karen’s since she began the boy’s home, to offer a home nearby to siblings to many of the boys who are placed at Hogar Miguel.

Construction projects may involve laying concrete flooring, concrete block, moving sand or dirt, or other manual labor as needed at the direction of the Guatemalan contractors building the Girl’s Home. Building experience is helpful, but not necessary.  Mission projects and supplies may change as needed. 

Crews will consist of approximately 5 members each, but all mission teams may rotate in to help with construction projects based on the needs of each project, and staff requirements.
