Kids’ FUN Youth Ambassadors – Travel to Costa Rica for a service trip! Our service trips are completely student driven and focused on uniting youth through volunteer initiatives, education and fun. Students connect throughout the school year with kids at Forjando Alas Kids’ Club in Uvita, Costa Rica through shared service learning projects and digital media by Skype, video and email.

Stop Child Abuse – When invited to paint signs to stop littering, Forjando Alas kids took the initiative to paint instead, “STOP CHILD ABUSE”. They painted and posted these signs around town to raise awareness, including one saying “If you are a victim of sexual abuse, contact Forjando Alas”. That sign went missing. Then one by one all the signs started to disappear. Our message has been heard. We now have tank tops, stickers, and are building a new Kids’ Club to provide protection. You can help here.
