Costa Rican Organizing Project

The Costa Rican Organizing Project (SW 496) provides an overview of grass-roots community organizing methods and offers intense community organizing experience in a rural international setting. The course is designed to foster a deep connection between students and developing communities in Costa Rica and to inspire students to become active participants in public service initiatives. Students spend five weeks in Costa Rica volunteering with the nonprofit organization CEPIA and practicing Consensus Organizing in the rural town of Huacas, in the Guanacaste province.
