Become an Educational Volunteer in Costa Rica

One of the countries that have become a voluntary project destination for all non-profit organizations is Costa Rica. This country is so popular for voluntary activities because of its relative safety, geography and distinctive landscape. Volunteers have nothing to lose when running voluntary programs in this country; they will enjoy the beauty of pristine beaches, lakes, wildlife and volcanoes. Costa Rica is a developed country in Latin America; if you read some references on the internet, you will find information that Costa Rica leads the international table in the export of Coffee and Banana and this country has the most stable government in the troubled region. Even so, Costa Rica still has a number of problems that need to be resolved together.

This country still needs the help of international volunteers. They are tasked with fighting for the education system in rural areas. There are many schools and communities in rural areas, especially in the Escazu and San Jose areas that are willing and want to get help from international volunteers who can contribute to their development.

Another interesting thing for international volunteers is that Costa Rica has many interesting attractions such as: the Montverde cloud rainforest; Lake Arenal and a living volcano; Tortuguero; turtle; and the Sloth sanctuary. A number of national parks and nature reserves; abundant wildlife from north to south; and most importantly, this is a dream of water lovers with lots of beaches and great surfing breaks. Actually, this country is very extraordinary to find valuable experiences in life. In addition to conducting volunteer activities you can also learn Spanish with local residents directly.

Costa Rica needs experts when discussing the education system. There are many trivial things that require handling such as the availability of teachers, the availability of clean water in schools, inadequate classes, etc. Well, this is an opportunity for those of you who have expertise in the world of education; you can use knowledge to improve the education system in this country. Children need professional educators who handle education problems sincerely.

The exodus of teachers who prefer to work in schools with more complete facilities in urban areas makes rural schools lack of teachers. As a result, rural schools only have a few teachers, even no teachers at all. In some rural schools, not infrequently one teacher teaches all school grades. Sometimes, teachers are even required to work in two or more separate schools from several villages.

In conclusion, costa rica is a good destination and is in dire need of international volunteer teachers.
