Teach English in Costa Rica

Program Category:


Project founded in 2005 in the province of Guanacaste which is commonly referred to as the “scenic jewel” of Costa Rica for its extraordinary beaches, small-town feel and friendly locals but it is also the poorest province in the country, with 39% of people living in poverty. The organization is dedicated to providing a venue in which children and young people can explore their educational interests through creative art-education initiatives, while simultaneously building on lifelong skills that hopefully will expand their employment opportunities in the future.
