In Metro Ministries Costa Rica,

Our mission is to bring love and hope to those who have suffered abuse and are in need in disadvantaged communities in Costa Rica. Our goal is to provide a safe and caring environment, where children can heal and grow, giving them opportunities for a brighter future. We work to build bridges toward a future full of possibilities, seeking to be a beacon of light amid the difficulties they face, believing in the transformative power of Jesus, His love, and His hope in their lives.


We constantly need people like you on our team, people ready to make a difference in a world full of suffering and pain.


Come join us, as a short-term or long-term volunteer, or for a gap Year:

By volunteering your time and skills, Metro Ministries can help and improve the lives of many children and families in Costa Rica.

Serving with us is also a way to use and develop your skills, put your faith and values into action, work for a cause you believe in, make the most of your time, and do something rewarding!


Our volunteers play a vital role in many areas of our organization. Our volunteers are the backbone that allows us to bring love and hope to many children and families through projects such as regular children's programs, youth initiatives, Vacation Bible School (VBS), mission trips outside of San José to various rural regions of Costa Rica, and administrative tasks in the office.


Accommodation for short-term, long-term volunteer, or gap Year: 

We aim for our volunteers' experience to be not only a service opportunity but also a complete immersion in the local culture and language. To achieve this, we have established partnerships with families who regularly attend a church and collaborate with Metro Ministries.

These families generously commit to hosting our volunteers in a safe home. They offer our volunteers not only a place to stay but also the opportunity to closely share their culture, language, and the warmth of a family.

Training / Introduction

Upon arrival at Metro Ministries, our volunteers receive a complete introduction to the culture and general information about Costa Rica. This orientation process not only provides them with an in-depth knowledge of the country's culture but also equips them with the necessary tools to understand and respect local traditions and customs.
In addition, each volunteer receives general training specific to Metro Ministries before beginning their service. 
This training covers practical and theoretical aspects related to our projects, the mission, and values of the organization, as well as the best practices for effectively performing their work.
