"I volunteered with this organization in 2016 for three months. I taught English to At Risk Youth that had been sponsored by the government to attend a technical program. This allowed them to further their education and expand their career opportunities. When a Costa Rican can speak English it doubles their salary and gives them access to higher positions! My students were fun and energetic, and though difficult at times, this experience was incredible rewarding.
The volunteer experience was great as well! I had a welcoming host mom, and was able to walk to my school everyday. I always had support from the volunteer coordinator, even if my question was not about the program. This was a great way to get my feet in the English Teaching Industry in Costa Rica. My plan was to stay for 6 months... but its been much longer than that!"
