Join us on this Costa Rica service trip for teens for unforgettable memories and an incredible volunteer experience! We will have the unique opportunity to perform up to 20 hours of valuable service work in two different communities.
In Sámara we work with a local association that provides supplemental educational, recreational, and career opportunities for youth with limited resources in the rural beach communities of the surrounding area. We will be helping run one of their many programs focusing on academic and artistic education, environmental consciousness, health, and socio-cultural development. Projects vary but our service work typically consists of working on art projects with the children, reading to them, teaching them English, and general upkeep of the school such as painting and light maintenance.
Along with our meaningful service work, you will explore volcanoes, jungles, and beaches. We will experience the best Costa Rica has to offer while ziplining, hiking, white water rafting, sea kayaking, and much more! Pura Vida!
