Costa Rica Volunteer Programs

If you are interested in volunteering, IPED can help you find a position working with environmental issues, animals and in the health and education fields to name a few.  We offer these opportunities to students who have studied for at least three weeks in our Spanish program and are at least 18 years old.  You can keep studying in Heredia or in Puerto Viejo and volunteer at the same time or work in a remote location in rural Costa Rica.  
Many volunteering opportunities are available in Puerto Viejo.  You can help the kids in an art center or school, protect the leatherback turtles, work with the women entrepreneurs in the area and aid the indigenous peoples that live in the surroundings.
