Über das Programm

Construction volunteers join projects in the San José area to work on public buildings and schools, typically in communities in need of assistance and funding. They are supported by a local, Spanish-speaking project manager who is experienced in guiding and training international volunteers.

Volunteers may be asked to perform a range of activities, such as:

  • Renovation work, like painting and plastering
  • Small repairs on walls and roofs
  • Laying tile or other flooring
  • Mixing cement, masonry
  • Carpentry, welding, and/or plumbing

Volunteers must be in good health and ready to work hard to join construction projects. They do not need experience, but a reasonable level of fitness and strong dedication to the work go a long way in ensuring that they get the most out of this project. 

At Construction projects volunteers are required to wear closed-toed shoes and long pants at all times. Tank tops are not permitted. We recommend to wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty or even ruining. We strongly encourage volunteers to bring work gloves, work boots, and safety glasses. Sunscreen and rain gear are also extremely important.

Our projects are located in the San José area. Walking or taking the bus is the most effective and cheapest way to get to and from the project. Travel time varies widely from project to project, and volunteers should expect to spend 15-60 minutes traveling each way. The average travel time is about 30 minutes. Depending on the project and housing locations, they may still need to change buses. Taxis are also widely available. On the first day at the project, participants travel on local transport with a Maximo Nivel representative who provides all the necessary information on how to get there and back.



Tagesablauf

Working hours vary according to the needs of the project, but volunteers can expect to work 3-4 hours per day, Monday to Friday, in either the morning or the afternoon.

Freizeitaktivitäten

There are lots of things to do in San José, such as city tours, shows at the National Theatre, the central market, zip-lining, etc. Our local staff always post a monthly events calendar to let participants know about the activities going on around Maximo. Outside of San José, volunteers can hike up volcanos, go whitewater rafting, take a trip to the Pacific or Caribbean coasts, and so much more. There are a lot of options and our staff is well-acquainted with the area and can advise you on the must-see places. Tours and trips can also be easily booked through our on-site travel partner.

Maximo Nivel has been such an amazing home away from home. They met me at the airport and have been here for me every second since.

2023 at Help Local Animal Rescue Centers

I wish I would've had more information about the project. There was almost no information about the transportation (duration, costs). The project was super far away and for a longer stay than 1 week it's a lot of money just for this. When I wanted to change to another animal project they only ...
