Program Description:
ILR Costa Rica GSL Program

The ILR School developed a summer Global Service Learning (GSL) opportunity in San Jose, Costa Rica with the organization FUNDECOR.  FUNDECOR was established through international cooperation (a grant and endowment from USAID) as a Costa Rican non-governmental organization in 1989.  FUNDECOR’s concentration is in sustainable economic development with a focus on preserving the land and the economy of the Central Volcanic Region of Costa Rica.  It is also working throughout Central America as well as northern South America.

The GSL program will focus on strengthening the human resources function at FUNDECOR as the organization expands to the next level of growth and complexity.  The relevance of this GSL experience for ILR students is to provide a robust international experience for 3 students interested in human resources in an international NGO setting.
