The future of Costa Rica is shaped every day in the classrooms and schools of the country, where kids from different paths of life gather to learn and have fun. Although Costa Rica has a clear focus in promoting education as a priority of the country, the contributions and support of international volunteers are always welcomed and needed.
The AFS international volunteers contribute to public schools or non-profit educational organizations (pre-school and elementary school levels), supporting educational and recreational activities, while sharing and learning with local kids. As these are community based organizations, the international volunteers also have the opportunity to integrate in the community, live with a local family and improve their Spanish language skills.
The specific activities to be done can vary, depending of the specific need of the hosting organizations and the abilities, initiative and interest of the international volunteers.
