The program

The aim of this program is to supply international volunteers to work with pre-school children in San Ramon in low income day care centres and in orphanages. The Costa Rica education system is under-resourced and volunteers are desperately sought to help children learn to their full potential. The most vulnerable tend to slip through the cracks, which is why this program focuses on vulnerable children who are in extra need of care and attention. Pre-school education provides a foundation for children’s social and educational needs and is an essential building block on which to start their educational journey, which is why it is crucial that all children are provided with a quality early childhood education. This is a really hands on program, allowing either qualified teachers or non-teacher volunteers to work closely with these amazing children. The children attending the centres where this program works require a lot of attention and most importantly, companionship. Volunteers will be supplying essential help in the form of teaching and day to day care for children and ensuring their educational, emotional, social, and physical needs are being met, for them to not only survive, but to thrive.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide childcare to vulnerable children in San Ramon
  • Improve the prospects of the children of Costa Rica
  • Allow impoverished families to place their children in childcare programs and allow them to work
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.

How you can help

Volunteers play an essential role in helping disadvantaged children through this wonderful program.  While volunteers will be giving care and compassion, and helping to create a solid educational foundation for the children, the benefits for the volunteer are immeasurable. Working with vulnerable children in a poor central American country and experiencing their lives and culture will be an amazing experience for any volunteer. Participants will spend their time taking care of children and assisting the local staff as needed. Volunteers will be busy working with the children, helping feed them and other care essentials, playing games and are encouraged to use their skills and interests to develop fun things for the children to do. The day to day tasks include helping at meal times with cooking, cleaning and feeding, arranging games and teaching.   

Volunteers will contribute in many ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Help to develop educational materials
  • Help to teach children
  • Attend to and interact with children
  • Create activities and entertaining children with games and songs
  • Help with chores
  • Help with kitchen and other duties where required

Freizeitaktivitäten

This wonderful program is set in the quaint city of San Ramón in the Alajuela Province of Costa Rica. San Ramon is known as the city of ‘Presidents and Poets’ and has also been described as a city of lovers!  Lovers of nature, lovers of life, of simplicity, of ‘Pura Vida’ -  the greeting and motto of the city that encapsulates living in peace and appreciating a life surrounded by nature, family and friends. This wonderful location is in the Cordillera de Tilarán mountains, at an elevation of 1,057 meters above sea level and only a 50-minute drive from the country’s capital San Jose.

Unterkunft

Volunteers on this project are accommodated with one of our friendly local host families, where breakfast and dinner of traditional Costa Rican cuisine are provided daily. Lunches are not provided but can easily be purchased from a local shop near the project site. All home-stay families have been fully vetted by our local team and are located within a short walk from each other, making hanging out with other volunteers easy.

All host families have standard amenities available, including comfortable beds, hot showers and modern bathrooms. Wifi is also available in most homes (additional charges may apply in some cases). All families have experience hosting international volunteers. Depending on the time of year it may be necessary to share a room with other volunteers. Living with a local family truly is the best way to throw oneself into the local culture and to meet people who will become lifelong friends!

For volunteers, living with a local family means they gain something that most travelers miss out on: a ‘live’ and authentic glimpse into family life and the character of the local ‘Tico’ people. By having the opportunity to stay with a host family and by working right alongside the local population volunteers can really experience all that Costa Rica has to offer!
