Association of International Volunteers of Costa Rica (AVIC)
The Association of International Volunteers of Costa Rica, also known as AVIC, is a local Non-Profit Association whose mission is to Manage and Host International Volunteers in their placements in Costa Rica.
AVIC is registered in San Ramon, in the Central Valley province of Alajuela. San Ramon is a medium sized traditional coffee growing town, only 45 minutes from the capital of San Jose. The town is located right in the center of Costa Rica, making it a great base to volunteer and explore the country.
AVIC was originally set up in 2009 to host volunteers sent to Costa Rica through the uVolunteer program, an International Volunteer Recruitment & Sending Agency. As uVolunteer's local partner, AVIC’s responsibilities was to arrange, coordinate and manage all volunteers and their placements once they arrived in Costa Rica.
As of 2012, AVIC’s mission has been expanded to allow it to:
Receive volunteers from other International Volunteer Recruitment Organizations
To enroll participants online and locally via: http://www.volunteercr.org
To work with local Industry Partners and Associations
With these changes, AVIC has now become a Premium Volunteer Hosting Provider in Costa Rica. We are your local specialist when it comes to Hosting volunteers in Costa Rica – simply because this is our core business and we don’t have to worry about anything else. Pura Vida !
