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.
What to Expect?
Volunteers will work at a non-residential centre for autistic adults to improve their life skills and help them function better in society. Individuals attending the centre have physical and mental disabilities of varying severity and need individual attention and care. Most of these individuals are independent and volunteers will mainly help around the centre by offering workshops, helping with daily physical therapy and simply spending time and chatting with the individuals at the centre.
