Full-Time Service-Learning Program

Cartago, Costa Rica

ISA Internships Cartago

Why ISA?

ISA Service-Learning offers opportunities for you to make an impact in a community abroad, enhance your cultural competency, and develop key skills that you’ll use for the rest of your life.

Choosing Cartago

Sitting almost 4,800 feet above sea level, Cartago is a small province located 15 miles southeast of San José. Although surrounded by natural beauty, the city is most famous for its rich history, culture and colonial tradition. It is home to the infamous Irazú Volcano, the Basilica de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles ruins and other ruins that date back past the 16th century.

Learning by Reflection

SL Icon

Learning does not happen as the result of an experience itself, but through intentional reflection upon an experience. Therefore, a vital part of service-learning is critical reflection through a guided curriculum.Learn More »
