Quepos is known as the gateway to Manuel Antonio National Park, a popular destination for tourists. In addition the town features many popular beaches. Tourism brings in many business opportunities for locals, however, in order to access these opportunities, locals must fulfill the requirements of employers who are looking to cater to English-speaking travellers. Therefore, the request from local schools is often for more English educational support. In supporting English education volunteers not only contribute to UN SDG #4, Quality Education, but also UN SDG #8, Decent Work and Economic Growth.

Volunteers on this program will work with staff, interns, and other volunteers to provide free individual English education classes to members from the local community. We work with ongoing curriculums to introduce English vocabulary and discuss sustainable development topics like environmental awareness. We also offer conversational classes so students can practice real situations and feel more confident in speaking English. Our work is based on the needs of the community, which means that the specifics of the classes, such as the time schedules, ages, and levels of English language competency change over time. Participants on a one week program will be teaching adults only.
