Global Impact Community Service

Global Impact programs offer Academic + Volunteer experiences in Heredia, Costa Rica. These culturally enriching programs expose students to the challenges facing the local community and allow them to make a positive impact while gaining valuable international experience and service hours. Students are immersed in the foreign language and culture through their activities, excursions and completion of a group community service project. Projects may include physical work such as reconstructing a school or building a playground, and also social work such as youth outreach and education. Projects aim to help the local community and therefore are subject to change depending on the specific needs at that time.

There is also the option to do a volunteer-only program in Costa Rica. In Heredia, students arrive and participate in a weekend excursion and then join the Global Impact group at Phase Two.  For Spring Break programs, please refer to the Spring Break Section.
