Atenas Spanish Academy

Interested in volunteering?

Atenas Spanish Academy's aim is to become a bridge between cultures, allowing you to share your knowledge, talent, time and money with local communities while enjoying a much more interesting and rewarding experience in Costa Rica.

You can assist teachers conducting classes in English, help protect the environment, lend a hand to children at risk or work on several community development projects.

Many of our projects directors have expressed their satisfaction at being able to accomplish many tasks because of the time and support volunteers have given them.
