The Program

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of children in Jaco Beach on Costa Rica's stunning Pacific coast. Volunteers will work as Teacher’s Assistants and will generally work Monday - Friday, at least four hours a day, depending on the needs of the school. Classes have high numbers of students and generally lack adequate resources so volunteers are needed to help with planning creative lessons and running games and activities, especially with the younger children. With English language skills, these children will have a greater chance of employment, especially in the tourism sector. English language skills will also greatly aid youth into higher education.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free English language classes to the children of Jaco Beach
  • Improve the future prospects of the children of Costa Rica
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.

How you can help

Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goals of this project, greatly assisting students to learn the English language. They provide a valid and effective means of English language tuition and allow students to learn directly off native English language speakers – a major benefit for learners of the language. 

Volunteers spend their time assisting the local teacher with daily activities, and will spend time teaching and playing with the children. They will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Help the teacher with the planned classroom activities
  • Assist with the delivery of a range of academic subjects
  • Converse in and teach basic English to the children
  • Play games and read to the children in English
  • Teach children good hygiene and life skills
  • Help the children complete projects

Dagelijkse activiteiten

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

8:00am Breakfast at the accommodation

8:30am Walk/bus to your project site

9:00am Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

9:30am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.

2:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

2:15pm Debrief with project supervisor

2:30pm Walk/bus back to the accommodation

Evenings Free time to relax and have dinner or go out and explore the sights and sounds of Playa Jaco – a cool and vibrant surf town!

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

This hugely beneficial program is dedicated to helping the children of Jaco Beach (Playa Jaco), a small town beside a beautiful beach on Costa Rica’s south Pacific coast, set near lush green rain forest and mountains with an active tourism market and buzzing night life scene. Jaco Beach is one of Costa Rica’s top surfing hot spots and the town, with its bustling main street of shops and cafes, has a vibrant, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. This is a truly wonderful place to volunteer and give back to the local community!

Rooms are shared by up to 4 volunteers, depending on the time of year and number of volunteers onsite.  The rooms each have their own bathroom and are equipped with cable TV, coffee machine and fridge.  There is even a pool, air-conditioning and wifi! A great base from which to volunteer and explore.

For those who prefer, home-stay options are also available with one of our friendly local host families. Discounted program fees apply to those arranging their own accommodation.

Hotel

Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) in San Jose. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Costa Rica.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Costa Rica biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Costa Rica dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Costa Rica.
