Program Description

WEB 102 in Costa Rica!

Explore Costa Rica, then create a website in WEB 102 to share your experiences and amazing journey. The adventure begins in San Jose where we will be volunteering with the Costa Rican Humanitarian Foundation (CRHF), who work to improve the quality of life of the vulnerable populations in Costa Rica. We will spend two weeks in a small village & stay with local families while volunteering on various projects around La Carpio. Projects may focus on education, community development, and extensive support services for women, at-risk youth and indigenous groups.

While there, we will visit a volcano, a coffee plantation, a beautiful beach and plan a zip-lining or rafting trip to experience the beauty that surrounds the area.

Scholarships up to $1,000 are available through HACC Foundation. Applying for scholarships does not guarantee receipt of funds. If you qualify, financial aid can be applied to the program fee. Contact the Financial Aid office on your campus.
