Day Care Support Volunteer Program in San Jose, Costa Rica

Company : A Broader View Volunteers Corps
Activity: Community Volunteer Projects
Country: Costa Rica
Duration: 1 week to 6 weeks
Approx Costs: 750 to 1500 £ Pound (UK)

The program provides services for children and adolescents who have little access to social services, and come from poor families living in and around San Jose. 

Very much like a community day care, or boys and girls center in the USA, this is a safe haven for many families.   Children are provided a place to come and get basic education, some food, recreational activities and love and attention from the caring staff.

Volunteers should be flexible, caring, be a self-starter and have strong Spanish skills.  Volunteers are asked to wear long pants and closed toe shoes at the orphanage.  Language Immersion lessons can be combined with this volunteer project.
