Costa Rica High School Exchange

With such a connected world it is almost impossible to stand out without international experience. The sooner students can get this experience the sooner they will be able to apply that experience to their lives. By participating in an exchange program participants are introduced to a foreign culture but with the safety and guidance of a host that is equally motivated to learn more about you and your culture.

Costa Rica Frika’s high school group exchange  program gives students the opportunity to host a student from Costa Rica, visit a student in Costa Rica, or do both.

Our campaign is specifically raising money to fund a scholarship program for students to do a high school exchange TO Costa Rica.   

Program fees are around $2,000/student and our goal is to fund at least $3,000 to award a combo of scholarships for travel in summer 2020.

Costa Rica Frika will be putting together scholarship guidelines and forming a committee of teachers who have previously had exchange experience to nominate deserving students for awards.

Travel at the high school age has such a powerful impact on one's development and exchanging takes it a step further having direct contact with culture, language, and a host family to develop an everlasting relationship with.

We'll be ever grateful for your contributions and provide trip updates from scholarship recipients.  ¡Pura vida!
