Community Outreach

Our community outreach programs provide students and teachers the opportunity to give back and to help people in need.

Through simple actions, we believe participants will develop cooperation skills and grow their self-esteem while working with the locals to make their community better.

Whether it’s helping local farmers in Peru, tackling climate change one tree at a time in Costa Rica or collecting and distributing non-perishable goods in Québec, participants will create memories that will last a lifetime.

With over 25 years of experience in educational travel, Prométour has been called by many the ‘artisan of the student trip industry’. Our commitment to customer service and safety makes the entire booking & travel process an enjoyable experience from start to finish.

Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

Orphanage Visits

Casa Luz (5 minutes from El Rancho) Hogar Siembra (10 minutes from El Rancho)

Children love to interact with new people, practice their English, play and often the buildings themselves can use a bit of painting or freshening up.

Public School Visits (10 -15 minutes from El Rancho)

Public Schools always need help to give students a better place to study! Painting classrooms can change the face of the school and give children motivation to study.

EBAIS Health Clinics (10 – 15 minutes from El Rancho)

The EBAIS in Costa Rica are small clinics located within the community. They offer an alternative to having to go to a hospital for minor injuries/ailments. They are public but do not receive government financial help. They need painting, reconstruction, and general improvements. This is especially helpful for the community.

Tree Planting

One of the priorities of Costa Rica is to protect nature and have many parks and programs that are dedicated to nature conservation. This activity offers participants the opportunity to be a part of it!

Sarapiqui (2h30 from El Rancho): In-The-Field Ecology Project – Planting trees teaches how important it is to conserve nature and recover the forests. Re-plant almond trees with a local community co-op of farmers. Over lunch, learn from the farmers their goals & achievements to help keep Costa Rica green!
