Costa Rica Multilingüe, a nonprofit whose objective is to provide people with communication skills for greater professional and personal development, is seeking volunteers and participants for its Community Conversations program in Playas del Coco. Community Conversations consist of small groups of Ticos with intermediate English skills meeting weekly for roughly an hour on an informal basis to improve those skills, led by a bilingual volunteer moderator. The meetings can be held just about anywhere including over breakfast, in a private home or place of business, or outdoors.
The program is already successfully in place in the Central Valley, and is growing into areas where there is a strong intermixing of local and expat people. Coordinating the program is Peace Corps volunteer leader Kristen Lea Woodruff. Those interested in volunteering or participating, or offering space for the program, may contact Kristin at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. They will then be put into a database and assembled into groups with further coordination to be provided by the moderator. Those volunteering to be moderators will receive a handbook with copyable materials and other resources, discussion topics and websites for more information.
This is an outstanding opportunity for all in our community to grow and develop.
