Volunteer Opportunity in Costa Rica

Hello, everyone!  As some of you may know, I am currently a sophomore majoring in Secondary English Education with a minor in Youth Empowerment & Urban Studies at West Chester University of PA!  All education majors is must complete a significant number of field work & student teaching during their college careers to gain experience! However, one thing ed. majors usually don't get to do because of their heavy courseload is a study abroad program!  I plan to do my field experience in a bilingual school in San Jose, Costa Rica from June 27th to July 28th! I will be spending a month serving as a teacher’s aide by grading papers, assisting students with homework and supervising the classroom. I will also have the opportunity to tutor special needs students one-on-one or teach English and facilitate recreational activities to gain practical classroom teaching experience! While I have been trying my best to save up money to pay for what I can, I presume that I may not be able to bear the costs alone. So, I am creating this to try and get support so that I can live out my dreams of traveling and helping others. Please, help me to embark on this journey! This experience will be like no other and I am excited to hit the ground running! Any amount of assistance to help with this amazing opportunity will be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time! Please contact me with any questions!  ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Link to find out more:  https://studiesabroad.com/experience/service-learning/program-locations/site/san-jose_costa-rica?field=education-and-literacy#public-school
