2017 Costa Rica Transit 1

Opportunity Overview

Working with our partner church in Costa Rica, the team will engage in projects such as construction, painting, renovations, and organization. In addition, they will spend time connecting with vulnerable families and children through games, arts, and relationship building. Spanish speakers are great assets, but English-speaking staff are also available to help translate.

We are looking for students who are in 7th grade (during the 2016-2017 school year), who are actively involved in Transit, and who can be accompanied by one of their parents (46 people maximum).
