This year, combine meaningful service with thrilling adventure for the summer of a lifetime. This two week trip is the perfect eye-opening, cultural experience for the teen looking to improve and explore their world. Give back to the local community by volunteering in small fishing villages along pristine white sand beaches. Spend your days working at a public health clinic or local primary school, assisting nurses and teachers while also helping to repaint buildings and get your hands dirty! No experience necessary - just an open mind. Work with the Costa Rica Humanitarian Foundation in La Carpo by helping with necessary building jobs and grounds improvement. Finally, partner with Life Monteverde and the Santa Elena National Park to focus on conservation service projects and environmental sustainability.
And as great as all that community service sounds, we'll also snorkel, sail, hike, zipline, and hang out on the beach! Service + adventure = one life-changing summer!
