It's the best of both worlds! Become part of a new community and live with a host family in Costa Rica. On weekends, travel around the region to meet up with other volunteers and Costa Rican students for fun, interactive workshops! You'll work with local youth in your community to design and carry out a project that meets community needs (and earning 215 service hours) while learning the meaning of "pura vida" with your new tico friends. In addition to leading day camps and working on your service project, you may spend your days leading English conversation circles, hiking around your town, exploring a coffee farm, learning to make tortillas, playing soccer, spending time with your host family, and becoming part of a new community.

  • Live like a local with a host family
  • Collaborate with the community on an environmental project
  • Lead activities for local youth
  • Improve your Spanish through authentic cultural immersion
