Construction and Renovation Projects in Costa Rica from US$310

Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Location : San Jose
Duration: 1 week to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 250 to 3000+ $ Dollars (US)

One of the ways we provide support to the different projects we work with is through our construction and renovation projects which you can join throughout the year.

Many projects are under-funded and run-down, and are in need of renovation work. Volunteers usually work alongside a local construction worker who provides them with direction and motivation. Volunteers work on a variety of buildings such as schools, orphanages, community centers and clinics.

Volunteer work varies but generally consists of renovating buildings, re-painting community centers, building required infrastructure such as orphanages and landscaping/gardening. You are not required to have experience with construction work but having good energy levels, a reasonable level of fitness and good dedication will go a long way to ensuring you get the most out of your volunteer project.
