Volunteer & Student Intern Opportunities

The Children's Well-Being Foundation has volunteer and student internship opportunities for those studying medical, nursing, public health, education, and other disciplines. Do you want to improve the health and lives of children in Costa Rica? Join us and work alongside staff and physicians at our medical clinic. We offer opportunities year-round. 

The Children’s Well-Being Foundation is making a significant difference in Costa Rica – we are providing health care to thousands of children who otherwise would have fallen through the cracks of their healthcare system. We provide primary care services, eye exams, and psychological services. We work with local and international partners to ensure the sustainability of the clinics and training opportunities for future doctors who are encouraged to pursue medical volunteerism.

The Children's Well-Being Foundation works with each group to tailor a program that works best for the participants. We customize programming and daily activities based on student interest so this is one of the best experiences of your life!
