Assist in providing community and medical services to those in need while gaining global health experience and immersing yourself in a new culture!
Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse and socially contrasting places in the world. Teeming with life of every kind, Costa Rica is a land of vibrant natural wonder. Its warm and welcoming people as well as its wildlife and ecosystems are found nowhere else in the world. Yet, in the same way that its differing ecosystems coexist in the same land, there are people in great need living among those who have much. In these places, ISL participates in meaningful health and community volunteer work led by our Costa Rican staff.
ISL Volunteer Programs in Costa Rica:
- Global Health
- Physical Therapy
- Community Enrichment
- Hike for Humanity
- ISL has over 20 years of experience providing volunteers opportunities in 12 different countries
- Our programs are always coordinated by our in-country employees, who are locals and know the area and culture well
- We work under the direction of the local government Ministries of Health, and students are only involved to the extent that these officials approve
- We treat acute conditions only and maintain contact with, and in most cases, re-visit work sites again and again to ensure a lasting relationship
