Futuro Verde is excited to offer an array of volunteer opportunities! Whether your interests lie in assisting classroom instruction, organizing after-school programs, social media assistance, or leading outreach efforts with educational organizations in the region, Futuro Verde offers altruistic opportunities to meet your needs.
Our program consists of the following:
Willingness and enthusiasm to work with staff and other volunteers as a team.
Some knowledge of Spanish
Teaching experience or experience working with youth in other educational settings
Optional additional experience or mastery (art, music, physical education, theatre, language, relevant trade)
Mid-morning snack and lunch during the days that the volunteer works at the school
Dates Available 2019:
January 28-December 13 (minimum 3 month stay, but the longer the better)
Upon acceptance: We require a donation of $150 to secure your spot and to cover the cost of the volunteer program to the school ($50 month). This donation may be made directly to the Association’s bank account in Costa Rica or as a tax-deductible donation via PayPal to our fiscal sponsor, Green Wave. This amount can also be paid in person upon arrival.
Housing: We do not provide housing with our volunteer program, although we are happy to assist you with finding appropriate housing if necessary.
Please send to us at firstname.lastname@example.org:
a cover letter stating your preferred session
your skills and areas of interest and enclose
your curriculum vitae (resume)
Unlike other non-profit organizations in the area, we are a non-profit organization that does not charge any fees; we only require a small donation to reserve your spot and to pay for the minimal expenses incurred by the school for the volunteer program. We only ask that you have a strong commitment to improving the lives of children in the Southern Nicoya Peninsula. We do have high standards for the people we work with and are seeking only accomplished, dedicated, and creative professionals who are willing to commit to making a difference in our corner of the world. If these attributes seem to describe you, we look forward to hearing from you.
