Costa Rica Study Abroad: Social Entrepreneurial Mentorships

Video and Photos

About

It's no secret: our world is facing massive socio-economic & environmental problems, which are at a scale that -if not addressed- will impact humanity as a whole.

We believe people need to step up to take on the world's biggest challenges; and that Social Entrepreneurs can turn into our every-day Superheroes.

Thus we created an online & in person academy to teach everyone from start up founders with an idea all the way to existing entrepreneurs looking to scale their impact how to create movements - build communities and focus on more than just the ROI of return on investment but that of Ripple of Impact.

We believe mentorships hosted all over the world at various eco-villages is the best way to promote education all the while supporting every student with online courses and accountability available 24/7.

Students will learn about everything from online storytelling - to how to build movements, permaculture to graphic design depending on what they are called to learn...

A Truly Unique Learning Experience

I participated in 2016's Costa Rica Bootcamp as a supporting member of the team, after several months of working with Superhero Academy. What I experienced working hands on with the students in Costa Rica inspired me to believe that this an event which can truly get anyone out of their rut and rigid mindset and really help them move forward in their lives.

It was a ton of fun. We had plenty of time for everyone to eat exotic food, go on lengthy hikes, and see incredible waterfalls, sunsets, volcanoes, and panoramic views of the rainforest. And without compromising the fun, the student work was focused and effective, encouraging a lot of group participation, team-work, and hands on problem solving.

Do not attend this if you aren't looking to get your mind straight on the future, because the powerful energy of Costa Rica mixed with Marc Angelo's spirit will leave you craving to get to work on your life's passion.

Ultimate game changer!

The single biggest game changer, ever!

I'd never been a stranger to chasing hard after my goals - I'd been around the world, seen and done incredible things... But knew I had more to give, and wanted to be a part of something bigger... I had all these grand designs, but had no idea HOW I was going to execute... No slightest clue how to make it happen...

My mentorship experience rocked my world! An incredible experience in an amazing part of the world, as part of an amazing group of people tackling the worlds biggest problems - everything I'd been wanting.
It put the whole world in a new perspective and radically overhauled my mindset, and my approach to tackling problems, executing goals, and way more.

I went in with high expectations, but they were shattered. It was way more than I'd hoped for. The team are a bunch of genius, ultra badasses, who know their stuff inside and out.

Walk in with an open mind, and it WILL change your life!

Get on it!!

Game Changer

Before the Costa Rica Boot Camp in 2016, I had really shy'd away from social media, and using it to communicate my passion and projects. I also lacked a lot of clarity and focus. So many ideas, but where to start!

Over the course of the week, the team helped break down these barriers holding me back. My confidence and clarity was strengthened. This confidence I have kept with me since, and I use constantly to break down the doubts in pursuing my goals. I now use social media as a powerful tool in this pursuit.

During and since the Boot Camp, I have gained a lot of great friends and connections, both on and offline, which have accompanied me on my journey.
I recommend the guidance and mentorship of Superhero Academy. There is a way here which helps you achieve what YOU want to do. Not telling you what to do, but rather helping you realise your vision and giving the tools to put this idea into action.
Thankyou to the amazing people I met on Carara mountain and the continued support of Superhero Academy.

These programs will get better and better. I felt some more one on one time with the Teachers would have been beneficial. But from what I understand, the programs which have followed have included more of this

The future of education is here (:

This was definitely a game changing event in my life. I wasn't exactly clear with the direction I was going in when I arrived at the mentorship. By time the month had completed though I got a lot of good exposure to the different career paths within the world of sustainability and I'm now pursing exactly what I've been looking for. The networking and friends you making during a mentorship is also incredibly valuable!

How can this program be improved?
More specialized training but this will come with time from trial and error

An Amazing Learning Experience in the Heart of Montreal's Old Port

In May 2016 I joined Super Hero Academy along with 5 other mentees on a journey into the depths of social entrepreneurship.

I learned invaluable skills about how to use social media and search engines to my advantage and how to write incredible online content.

We learned how to make outstanding promotional videos as well as get our hands dirty on Valhalla. I have a new respect for our earth and where our food comes from thanks to my stay.

One of my favorite aspects of the mentorship was how much I got to learn about myself. I got to pin point and remove psychological blocks, to move ahead boldly in the direction of my highest self.

We also had a lot of fun! there where multiple party's in our massive loft in the heart of downtown Montreal. Not to mention fresh food delivered from local farms.

I am 100% going to be engaging with Superhero Academy's mentor ships in the future.

Next time I would love to see more of a focus on the customer discovery process and opportunity identification.

I wad lost and now am found

First class, planning and scheduling, got me right on track. Marc is a natural but doesn't rely on that as he continues to learn and share new tricks, and old, to help us get to where we want to go. I am being coached one on one with Marc weekly, as well as following the online class and I truly feel empowered now to share my gifts with the world. I am grateful tk have met Marc on my journey and travel with him along the way.

How can this program be improved?
by facilitating the networking available with the tribe.

I wish I'd done it sooner!

I went to Costa Rica last year hoping to have a good time and learn a thing or two and ended up with much more than I could have imagined. I made long lasting friendships, learnt to surf, hiked a waterfall and a volcano and FINALLY put an action plan together to run my own business. Nearly a year later, I see everyone from our Costa Rica tribe get closer to turning their dreams into realities. I cannot wait to see what more I will experience in year 2!

Two thumbs WAY up!!

Building a Social Business

The Super Hero Academy goes above and beyond to provide skills and knowledge needed to build a social business that will solve real world issues. Their unwavering support has been vital in my professional and personal development. I have attended both the Super Hero Academy Boot camp in Costa Rica and the 30 Day Mentorship in Montreal and at the Valhalla Movement. While attending both Marc Angelo Coppola and his staff were helpful at every step of the way. The accommodations were excellent and the classes were pertinent to the information I was looking for. It dramatically improved my ability to schedule and plan out my days, weeks and long term goals. If your looking to super charge your dreams and passions then the Super hero Academy is the only place to get the tools to make them a reality!!

I have an awesome career because of these guys!

Arriving in Montreal for this mentorship we were taken to an amazing apartment in downtown Montreal with some awesome food being prepared when we walked through the door.

I chose to focus on creating a career with social entrepreneurship and have successfully made that my full time job since the program began.

Great group of people who know business, sustainability, permaculture and way more!
