Join Youth Challenge International in Costa Rica on the Youth Discovery program! For more than 17 years, YCI has been working with Reto Juvenil Internacional (RJI), a local organization that offers volunteers a wide variety of options and experiences in Costa Rica. From economic and social development to environmental awareness and education, there is sure to be a project for every type of volunteer.
The volunteer programs focus on education and life skills for youth and preservation of the environment, especially rain forests. Ecotourism and environmental projects include creating and maintaining park trails, basic infrastructure construction, and environmental education. By living in Costa Rica and promoting sustainable community projects, volunteers have the chance to make a difference and immerse themselves into a new and beautiful culture.
