Welcome to the 7EDU Volunteer Abroad Program!

We're launching a new program to provide students with unique, in-depth learning opportunities and travel experiences. 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. The program kicks off in December 2022, with an exciting trip to Costa Rica!   

December 2022 - Wildlife Animal Rescue in Costa Rica

Grade 9-12 / Age 14-18

Students in grades 9-12 will work together for 1-2 weeks 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. 

Costa Rica - Program Dates and Costs

The first date of each program is the departure date (Sunday). The work week begins on Monday. Students enrolling in the 2-week program will have a free weekend in the middle of their stay. Please note the cost of each program does not include airfare.
