Students who participate on our language immersion program in Costa Rica have the unique opportunity to volunteer (12-15 hours of service) helping those in need throughout the local community. Students get the rewarding experience of helping others and spend the day with locals, helping them improve their language skills. The program offers the best of SPI language immersion with an added emphasis on service based learning within the local community. Students will engage in volunteer experiences in the mornings followed by our standard intensive Spanish language immersion courses in the afternoons. The program is designed to not only immerse students in the language and culture, but also give them firsthand experience interacting with the local community.  Students will engage in projects such as home repair, public works projects, assisting churches, working at orphanages, and many others.
