About Program

ILISA's Volunteer Program is an educational experience in which students are involved in organized community service activities that meet the real community identified needs. It is a special teaching process that combines both the organized activity with a guided academic reflection. An active field work is combined with classroom dialogs and student and teacher’s feedbacks.

Thanks to the practical experience, the projects play a big role in career development and are applicable to the school curriculum of each participant.

The Volunteer Program at ILISA is not only about working; We can also create programs combining Spanish lessons, cultural activities and excursions to local beaches, rainforests, coffee plantations and other exciting and must-see costarican places. We think that once in Latin America, it is always nice to get both the cultural and the educational experience!

Ilisa Experience

Once we arrived, we had a housing issue because two of our students did not show up. Because the host parents had already prepared their homes for us, we accommodated to the changes and had two students (girls) stay in homes by themselves instead of rooming together. It all ended up working out. The instruction by Helen and her other partner was excellent. I personally enjoyed having her assistance. Catarina Campos was the best city guide we had the entire trip. The young male guide was not the greatest. He rushed through a lot of the sites and wasn't very helpful. We hit a few problems (curriculum-wise) in the beginning arriving to the schools, but we all were flexible and worked it out. We definitely didn't want to leave by the end of the week. They made a lasting impression on us!

What would you improve about this program?
Communication between the colleges and schools needs to be better so that the college students will know what to teach when they get there. Also, have enthusiastic tour guides helps our experience as tourists. You guys had wonderful people help us for the most part.
