Volunteers in the Childcare Program work in child care centers, orphanages,community child care centers, community soup kitchens and day care centers` in and around the capital city of San Jose. Due to a regular and consistent migration of people from nearby poor countries such as Guatemala, there has been an increase in poverty and homeless people. The Orphanages and child carecenters support and protect the homeless children and also those who are under fed and malnourished.

As a volunteer you will help the local staff in providing love, care and much needed attention to the children. Volunteer work varies from day to day but you would be generally acting as mentors for the children, provide individual love and affection for the children, organize different activities for the children, help the local staff in their work and make suggestions to them for improvement. Volunteers spend their time taking care of children, usually playing games and reading them books. Also, volunteers will assist the staff as needed. The volunteers will work from Monday to Friday, at least 4 – 5 hours a day. At times, the volunteer will work more or less hours, depending on the coordinators needs. The volunteer should wear proper clothing; formal clothing and long pants are preferred. During the weekends , you will have free time to explore the beautiful area of Heredia as well as San Jose.
