Our project aims to support various non-profit initiatives in Costa Rica, especially those that are committed to the development of children and animals. The main tasks include maintaining and managing the Instagram account of the projects to make their activities and progress visible. You will create and edit high quality photos and videos as well as write and regularly post informative texts in Spanish and English.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to visit other projects to document their work through photos and videos as well. Your working hours are 3-4 hours per day and are flexible to meet the different needs of the projects. A varied working environment is guaranteed.

In addition to social media management, you can plan and carry out beach clean ups, as well as organize soccer matches and fundraising events. These events help to raise environmental awareness and mobilize additional resources for the projects.

You will learn to work independently and in a coordinated manner, but you can always get in touch with our contact person on site if you have any concerns.

Costa Rica - Country Information

Translated literally Costa Rica means rich coast and is also known as the ‘Switzerland of Central America‘. In the North, Costa Rica shares a border with Nicaragua and one with Panama in the South. Due to the number of national parks and the mostly untouched beaches Costa Rica is a paradise for nature lovers and surfers.

All programs can be booked with friends. If you would like to book a program as a group, we recommend that you enquire in advance. Each person must book the project individually.

Ideal for all programs are at least three months in advance. In principle it is also possible for us to place short-term applicants (volunteering and language study travel) in Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is a safe country and the people are very friendly and warmhearted. In big cities, as in every big city in the world, there is petty crime. When travelling, the following things should be taken into account: always keep an eye on valuables, always keep your hand luggage on your lap in buses, and at night you should not travel by bus or withdraw money from ATMs. Up-to-date information on the situation can be found at the Embassy or Foreign Office.

Please note that in Costa Rica all electronic devices can only be used with an adapter. They are available in many electronics stores.

In principle, no language course is mandatory in advance. However, depending on the volunteering program, certain levels of the language of your destination country may be required to complete the project. We would be happy to advise you individually on your chosen project.

Depending on the program, we work with host families in the vicinity or there are volunteer houses at the project site.

For all programs you have to be covered by foreign health insurance. We will be happy to help you find a suitable insurance policy.

During the language school and in the volunteering projects, you will always have a direct contact person to help you with any problems. Of course you can also always contact us.
