The future of Costa Rica is shaped in the classrooms and schools of the country, where kids from different walks of life gather to learn and have fun. Although Costa Rica has a priority of promoting education, the contributions and support of international volunteers are always welcomed and needed.

You will work with public schools and non-profit educational organizations (pre-school and elementary school levels), supporting educational and recreational activities, while sharing and learning with local kids. As these are community based organizations, you will also have the opportunity to integrate in the community, live with a local family, and improve your Spanish language skills.
