About the Journey

Through our partnership with Hope Partners, this global(x) team of Transit students and parents will head to San Jose, Costa Rica. Costa Rica 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.

As you volunteer, you’ll work on school and community improvement projects like painting, renovations, 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!
