7EDU Volunteer Abroad - Costa Rica Program

June 13 - 21, 2024

Grades 6-12

Please note the cost of each program does not include airfare.

Volunteering abroad is an excellent way to explore the world and make life-long friendships - all while doing meaningful work that will help make a difference in local communities. 

Students in grades 6-12 will work together in a wildlife animal shelter under the supervision of skilled veterinarian teams. They will help to rescue injured indigenous animals, such as monkeys, deer, sloths, ocelots, coati, kinkajous, and exotic birds, and assist in rehabilitating the animals so they can eventually be released back into the wild to survive on their own.
