Christmas Program in Costa Rica

Program Dates: 23 – 29 December 2018

Oh, Christmas time. Tis´the season to be jolly; to spread love, cheer, and count our blessings. Fortunately, most in developed countries have many blessings to count. And though, we should all be grateful for what we have, tis´the season to also give as much as we can to those less fortunate. This year, spread your Christmas cheer to communities in need in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Begin your week by working hands-on with a beautification project at a local child care facility. Depending on the needs of the facility, you might assist with painting, gardening and minor construction. Later in the week, you will volunteer working with kids by leading and organizing arts and crafts, playing games, and enjoying various activities with the children. You will also participate in a holiday childcare party to spread real holiday cheer; wrap and distribute gifts, serve special holiday snacks, and engage in dances and games. For some children, this may be the only holiday celebration and gifts received. Finally, you help to provide care at an elderly facility where you engage in talk therapy, play board games, and participate in dances.

Christmas Program in Guatemala

Program Dates: 23 – 29 December 2018

Christmas is sneaking up just as fast as ever, but instead of the usual holiday shopping frenzy, and sugary gingerbread men, why not spread the holiday cheer in the beautiful city of Antigua, Guatemala? Discover the true meaning of the season as you give back to communities in need. Work with various projects throughout the city including working with kids, volunteering on a sustainable coffee farm, and assisting children with special needs.

Engage children in activities, arts and crafts, and provide companionship. Or work on a sustainable coffee farm which allows you to assist a local farmer in the production of his coffee as you pick and sort coffee beans, plant shade trees, and roast and package the final product. Assisting with children with special needs involves playing games, arts and crafts, and helping with feeding time.

Your program allows you to participate in the annual holiday party where you wrap and distribute gifts to the children in the community, lead games and activities, and serve food to the attendees. For some children, this may be the only holiday celebration and gifts received.
