Serve in Costa Rica with Young Life Expeditions

costa rica.jpgYoung Life leaders in Costa Rica have a rich tradition of loving teenagers in their neighborhoods! 

Vida Joven (Young Life) has a presence in 16 communities in Costa Rica. There are six full-time Costa Ricans on staff. Since 1981, the ministry has been growing steadily and now has 100 volunteer leaders and more than 400 kids attending club and 600 kids attended camp last year alone. Vida Joven has expanded to included Capernaum, ministry to disabled kids and Young Lives, a ministry to teen moms. Folks that take time and resources to come and see their ministry in action and help serve their community by doing a service project offer an enormous boost to Vida Joven Costa Rica!  

We all need one another’s encouragement and love and Expeditions are one of the best ways to build bridges in God’s family!


Teams will participate in a community service project in San Jose — as the time draws closer, the staff in Costa Rica will determine what the needs are and determine the appropriate project. Teams get time with kids, staff, leaders and one another. Lodging is often near the project site at  and conducive to teams. Include in a teams week of service are opportunities to experience Young Life in San Jose, experience the rich Costa Rican culture and have a day of Adventure in and around San Jose.
