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?
At the orphanage and childcare placements, volunteers will organise a variety of activities for the children, and assist with their school work. Volunteers are encouraged to use their skills and interests to develop music and dance, jewellery making, aerobics and arts & crafts work shops. Alongside the orphanage work, volunteers may also work in shelters, community centres or childcare facilities in impoverished housing areas, always working alongside severely underprivileged children.
