The festive period in Costa Rica is vibrant, colorful and exciting, and this special project is designed to help volunteers over Christmas and New Year enjoy the season and contribute towards valuable community initiatives. Many projects are closed at this time of year, but this provides an inspiring way to do something meaningful over the festive season.
You’ll assist in a number of tasks, such as working with children and elderly, coordinating holiday celebrations locals, as well as cleaning and renovating community centers. You’ll also have the public holidays free to enjoy as you please, sightseeing around this special time in San Jose and surrounding areas, which is a beautiful and unique experience during the festive season.
Please note, in 2019, this project is only available to volunteers who begin the weeks of 23rd and 30th December - volunteers should arrive in the morning the day before your project starts.
The Holiday Experience project requires an extra cost of US$95 (approximately £80) per week for additional supervision, materials and logistics involved. This will be included in the program fee quoted to you by IVHQ when you apply. Volunteers who continue on the program beyond these weeks will transfer to another volunteer project of their choice.Apply now
