Even though Costa Rica is well known for its touristic activities, there is a wide range of volunteer opportunities for organizations wanting to have a positive impact on the people of Costa Rica. Granted, tourism does help Costa Rica financially, however a lot can be accomplished with volunteer teams. One thing we have noticed, lives are positively changed on both sides– those volunteering, and those “receiving.”
Whether you are a corporation, school, church, family, couple or individual, Costa Rica Concepts will connect you to the right project. Tell us what you would like to do, and we will give you several options to choose from. Some examples would be:
- Build a school
- Build a footbridge so children can safely get to school.
- Help out at an orphanage, church, or other non-profit organization.
- Teach English as a second language
- Help with a community project
- Help with a local medical clinic
- Run a sports camp
You will need to decide what type of project your team would like to be involved in, and if location is an issue. There are opportunities for urban, sub-urban and rural locations. You can even work with an indigenous community like the Cabecar or Bribri Indians. Length of time is another aspect to consider. Most volunteer teams run anywhere from a week to two weeks. Costa Rica Concepts will customize your trip based on your time frame and the type of project you want to be involved in.
Are you looking for a longer term commitment? There are different organizations and types of opportunities available. Costa Rica Concepts will help you find what is best for you.
