Summer 2016 Participant
San Luis de Monteverde is the most amazing, humbling, respectful places I have ever traveled to. Pura Vida!

Summer 2017 Participant
I was unsure of what to expect when I arrived in Costa Rica, because I did not have time to research the country in detail past what we had been told during orientation. All I can say is that this program was 100x better than I could have expected. If I could go all over again I would. The country is beautiful and welcoming. The teachers are caring and personal.

Summer 2017 Participant
I could not imagine having different people in charge of the program. The teachers and staff were so personable. After the program I plan to stay in contact with my teachers as mentors in my life. They handled any challenging situations with professionalism.

Working with the students in different schools/environmental settings showed how each student can be taught and why their level of education can vary. It was also a calming experience to be in the mountains and later on in the city.
