Volunteer to Teach English in Costa Rica
Volunteer to Teach English in Costa Rica

Embrace the Pura Vida and Contribute a Valuable Skill

As a volunteer teacher you’ll have the chance to support local schools, community centers, after school programs or other institutions. You can expect to teach in one-on-one or group settings for 3-4 hours per day, with the possibility of some independent planning work needed off-site. You’ll have an orientation and ESL crash course to prepare for success. Stay with a friendly local host who will provide a delicious breakfast and dinner each day, attend optional Spanish classes, relax on the beach in Manuel Antonio or explore San José in your spare time.
