About the Journey

*Students will need a parent present to help complete the Releases portion of the application. A SEPARATE application is required for BOTH parent/guardian and student.

 

Through our partnership with Openhouse, this team of Transit students and parents will head to Costa Rica. The Central American country is known for its biodiversity, beautiful beaches, volcanoes, and hot springs. In many aspects, Costa Rica is a success story in terms of development. It is considered an upper-middle-income country, and its steady economic growth has helped it report the lowest poverty rates in Latin America. Still, there are areas of the country where families live in extreme poverty and have little opportunity, especially in the city of Pavas.

This team will be working on school and community improvement projects like painting, renovation, planting, cleaning, and organizing.  You’ll have the opportunity to spend time with the school children and their teachers as you and your team lead fun activities like arts and crafts, sing-a-longs, and interactive games. 

Seeing the struggles and sharing the love of Jesus with the Costa Rican people is an eye-opening and humbling experience and one that you won’t soon forget. If you’re excited to engage with children, this team will be sharing a week of hope, encouragement, and fun!

Price listed is person. Please only apply for ONE student journey at a time.
