Like mucking in, but only have one week to give? This program is perfect for you!

To learn children need a safe and solid environment with the right facilities and resources to help them learn. Schools in Costa Rica are severely under - resourced and volunteers are desperately sought to help maintain existing facilities and to build additional ones. This program allows volunteers to work in the beautiful seaside town of Jaco Beach, on Costa Rica's stunning Pacific coast. The area faces major issues with schools that urgently require work to their facilities. This program offers true assistance to schools by supplying them with an international volunteer labor force that allows them to repair and maintain school facilities that they would otherwise be unable to afford. 

Goals of this Project:

·       Provide free volunteer labor to maintain school facilities in under-resourced schools in Costa Rica

·       Improve the future prospects of the children by supplying them with safe spaces to learn and play

·       Expose the locals to new and innovative ideas and a different way of doing things

·       Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.

 

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SATURDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to have a tangible and lasting impact on the lives of families and communities facing extreme poverty in Costa Rica. This 'hands-on' project is ideally suited to those volunteers with some knowledge and experience in construction or any of the building trades, however the project is open to all and does not require participants to have specific education, qualifications or experience, as you will be shown everything you need to know by your local project leader. Importantly though, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, be fit and active, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
