Costa Rica Medical Volunteer Program

The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the local community in Costa Rica where you will serve.  Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence.  An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.

When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation.  Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. We work with our partner organizations in Costa Rica to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are sustainable and effective.
