Overview

Since 1963, more than 3,000 Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) have served in Costa Rica in a variety of projects in the areas of health, education, the environment, community development, agriculture, small business development, and youth development. Throughout the program's existence, Volunteers have been consistently well received by the Costa Rican people and local partner agencies.
The children, youth, and families (CYF) project was the primary sector of the Peace Corps/Costa Rica program from 1998-2002. In 2003, a second project in rural community development (RCD) began, which focuses on the poorest rural communities in the country. In 2005, a third project in Community Economic Development (CED) began. In 2010, a fourth project began in teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL).
