It's the perfect way to improve your communication skills and learn practical vocabulary every day. You’ll have the chance to discover a side of reality that’s often overlooked, leading to personal growth.

Travel the World Helping Others
Here are some of the destinations where we offer you the possibility to put your heping hands to work:
Santo Domingo de Heredia, Costa Rica
The tucan is one of Costa Rica's most emblematic birds, and now you have the chance to learn more about them first hand. The Rescue Ranch cares for injured birds before returning them to their natural habitat. You'll be preparing the animals' food, pitching in with the cleaning, and taking care of nature.
Teach English to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. With this experience, you'll get to practice your Spanish, learn how to use the center's teaching methodology, and provide a very important service to children and teens — their futures will be brighter thanks to you.
Volunteer abroad helping abandoned cats and dogs by pitching in at an animal shelter: cleaning the facilities, feeding the animals, and taking the dogs on walks will all be part of your daily routine. If you love being surrounded by furry friends, you'll also get to play with the dogs outside in the center's patio area.
Do you like to spend time with the elderly, listen to their stories, and participate in activities designed to improve their health? Or perhaps you prefer to work with underprivileged children, helping them with their homework and teaching them life skills. We work with three centers, and each of them is unique — feel free to ask us for more information!
