About Vida Volunteer

Vida Volunteer strives to empower communities and promote health through high-quality Service Learning Trips in Central America. We believe we can make a real difference by connecting the efforts of communities, students and local healthcare systems.
We focus on making a difference in Central American communities with little to no access to healthcare. Depending on the field of choice, students join our medical, dental or veterinary program and travel to Costa Rica, Nicaragua or Guatemala to work under the supervision of local licensed professionals while providing free care to underserved communities.
