This summer, I got the opportunity to live and serve in beautiful San Isidro, Costa Rica. I helped in developing the community center, taught English classes and lead health discussions at the local high school, and helped the community develop skills for when groups of volunteers come to visit/work in the community. I absolutely LOVED my time in Costa Rica and cannot wait to go back. I became a part of the community and definitely shed some tears when I had to leave.
Through this experience, I learned more about myself and the world in which we live. I wholeheartedly recommend ISP. The Jordan Institute made sure that everything was taken care of for this first time traveler. From prepping me for the trip to planning the details in country I felt completely safe and prepared for my first time abroad.
