If you ever wanted to learn Spanish why not consider a Language Immersion program. This is a wonderful  opportunity to take Spanish lessons and also volunteer in a local community project.  By living with a local Costa Rican family, having daily Spanish lessons and interacting with locals you will be amazed how quickly you can learn.  

Language Immersion classes can be combined with any of the San Jose based volunteer project: medical, orphanage support, pre-medical. Focus will be on pronunciation, grammar, and conversation/dialogue.  Lessons are 7 hours divided in 3 days a week, you can buy more hours per week locally if needed.

Important: Arrival flights must be before 10pm (no exceptions) to San Jose and departure flight should be after 1pm.

WHAT DO MY FEES PAY FOR?

When you join an A Broader View program your financial contribution supports the hundreds of needy communities where our volunteer programs are based.  Donations are helping to stimulate the local economies with coordinator and hosting jobs, with new constructions at local school and orphanage, with much needed medical supplies to under served hospitals and clinics. 

ABV works tirelessly year round to support our volunteers, and also to serve the local communities where we are based.  As a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization we receive 100% of our funding from our volunteers' program fee donations. Your program fee is used for airport pick up & transfer, departure transfer, placement logistics, orientation, food & accommodations, in-country assistance as well as programmatic administrative support and continuity of our volunteer programs.   If you have questions about our program fees email to [email protected] or call us toll free at 866-423-3258.
