Two week group cultural exchange with Costa Ricans students.  We offer a sending program where you can visit a school, or a receiving program where you can host a Costa Rican school.  We also offer a reciprocal program where you can both send and receive.  In Costa Rica students stay with an exchange partner, attend their school, and visit the cultural and tourist attractions of Costa Rica.  Visiting Costa Rican students do the same when exchanging to their host community.  This exchange also offers an individual supplement for those that would like to exchange longer to Costa Rica. 

Valentines Day Escape- Looking to get away?  This is a great opportunity to see the best of Costa Rica, not just the touristy side but also the cultural side with plenty of beach, sun and rainforest.  Tour runs February 10th-18th, 2018 and packages start at $1,250.

Individual experience- A solo experience involves volunteering and/or interning with the freedom to decide when, where, and how you want to shape your experience.  International experience is paramount for any career and any stage of life.  The cultural insight gained from an experience like this has the potential to change your life.  Participate in our core projects to find out just what we mean:

Sea Turtle Conservation- If you’re up for long walks along the beach and want to show solidarity with the many endangered sea turtles, then you’ve come to the right place.  Witness this natural event and work to protect it from being exploited.  Without volunteers, poachers and invasive predators would rid the beach of turtle eggs and the already endangered species would be at risk of extinction.

Wild Animal Rescue Center- Through no fault of their own, these animals have been illegally domesticated, abandoned by their families, electrocuted by power lines, or injured in the wild.  Each animal has their own sad story, which can only be told through their eyes.  Surrounded by these animals, you’ll feel a peace like no other being able to care for them.  What at first may seem shocking, will lead to a greater understanding of rainforest animals and the protection they require.

Teach English- This is your time to shine.  As a Native English speaker you can make a unique and substantial contribution to the community.  Dreams of a better life are all earned through hard work, and especially English, if you’re not a native speaker.  You will be moved by the value and prospects you can add to your students life. 

Group Experience- 1-4 week service/educational projects allows your group to interact in the community while learning the local culture all with fun excursions packed into a great cultural experience.
