Proyecto San Gerardo provides skills training to rural Costa Ricans to help them find better jobs. We are located in San Gerardo de Rivas, near Mt Chirripo - the highest most spectacular mountain in Costa Rica. The area is perfect for hiking and other outdoor activities as well as photography and wildlife viewing. Just an hour by bus from the city and 2 hours to the beach volunteers can get away to explore the beauty of Costa Rica at the weekends.
Volunteers may apply for the following teaching positions: ESL teachers (*3 month minimum), 'Amigos Ingles' conversation practice volunteers, Computers Skills teachers, First Aid instructors and Business Development Skills teachers.
We also need website developers, writers, crafts teachers and youth leaders.
All our volunteers receive orientation, home-stay, and ongoing support throughout their stay.
Volunteer and have fun! Pura vida!
* other positions have a 4 - 6 week minimum commitment
