The local government and Educational Supervisor are fully behind our project, giving us access to many schools and community buildings in the area. Environmental projects are also eager for workers when their funds allow for projects to commence. We aim to be flexible in response to the needs of the community; painting and maintaining buildings, assisting with construction, maintaining green areas and helping with local agronomy and environmental projects. If you are staying for longer than a week, you can expect a varied workload.

Please note this trip may require you to purchase a cultural experience week with it. Click Here to find the relevant cultural experience week based on the country where this trip operates in.

Aims & Objectives

To provide practical assistance to the local community wherever needed, whilst fostering cultural interchange.

Schedule
Monday to Friday

Your workload will vary depending on the project, and you may not be at the same site all day. You can expect to work for 3-6 hours as manual work in Costa Rica is demanding, due to the humidity. You will have lunch either on or near the site or at the centre, and can expect to be away from the centre between 07:00 in the morning until approximately 16:30, depending on your schedule, giving you plenty of time to immerse yourself in the project and to get to know other participants and local contributors.

When confirming your dates please take note of the Public Holidays in the Holidays section. There may be disruption to the projects on Public Holidays.
