Impact Corps Costa Rica
Your 10 week program in Costa Rica will begin with 3 weeks of intensive Impact Corps training, presented through the Thinking Beyond Borders curriculum. During your next 7 weeks, put your training into action with an impact work assignment in a Costa Rican daycare, supporting the development and educational goals of children ages 3 to 6. Impact Corps Costa Rica gives you the perfect combination of training and service as you kick off your immersive experience in international development.

Immerse yourself in lush landscapes dotted with cattle farms as you travel to the pristine beach towns of the Guanacaste province. With rolling hills, rainforests, and quaint colonial towns in a tropical setting, Guanacaste offers the perfect combination of nature with Costa Rica's laid-back “pura vida” lifestyle. Discover monkeys and tropical animals, while waking up to the crowing of roosters in your rural Costa Rican paradise.
