WAYRA offers you a wide range of opportunities to become a volunteer in Costa Rica. From Teaching English at local schools, Social Work at nonprofit human rights organizations, Recycling to Turtle Rescuing in National Parks, you will definitely find your favorite volunteer work in Costa Rica.
And the best thing is, for most of the projects you do not have to speak Spanish very well to volunteer - a basic understanding of Spanish is sufficient. Therefore, the only condition for all those programs, in order to guarantee a basic knowledge of Spanish, is to take Spanish classes at WAYRA for at least 2 weeks, or as long as you want, before you can start your volunteer job.
Please find an overview about the different projects at the following links:
1. Turtle Rescuing
2. Social work at CEPIA
3. Education (teaching English)
