Center for children with a challenge

Working with children with a challenge can be an educational and rewarding activity!

Besides working on your (related) Spanish skills, you will also gain valuable insight into the unique healthcare and educational challenges facing Costa Rica and Panama. Furthermore, you will build connections with local professionals and work on improvement of your résumé.

Speech therapy, special education, social work, physical/exercise therapy and physical education are valuable skills for the local providers.
