Spanish schools in Costa Rica Volunteer Program

Rotary Club of Nicoya:

Community service projects can include a variety of tasks such as delivering books to needy children, painting, utilizing your computer and English skills, working a bake sale, building a new library, or cleaning up a local river.

Senior Assisted Living Center:

There's no greater need in the community than for our seniors living at the Center.   The residents are always appreciative of visits, and chance to play some cards or have an interesting conversation.  Volunteers will learn a lot of family history, our community, as well from the life experiences.
