I will be volunteering in San Jose, Costa Rica from 19th May to June 3rd, 2019 to teach school children. The focus is on improving outcomes for children from difficult backgrounds in San Jose.
I will be working alongside local staff and playing a hands-on role in providing much-needed support within local community centers, daycares, schools, soup kitchens and kindergartens. The tasks may include working one-on-one with the children, organizing games and activities, providing education around hygiene and assisting with homework. The majority of the volunteer work is focused on working with children from immigrant communities in Costa Rica that are facing social issues in regards to poverty, homelessness, and unemployment.
The volunteering activity is being organized by International Volunteer HQ (www.ivhq.org). Thank you for the support and please don't hesitate to reach me with any questions and feedback.
