I am headed to Costa Rica to volunteer at a school for students with special needs! The volunteer opportunity is through International Volunteer HQ, which sets me up with a host family and the volunteer placement. Although this is a volunteer trip, there are a lot of fees that I have to pay to participate including program fees, flight fees, travel insurance, and some meals while I am there. The program itself is $900 and includes my housing and most meals. I still need to pay for my flights and other travel related expenses as well.
