Welcome to Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Heredia, Costa Rica
Experience the beauty and charm of Costa Rica while you come to know Jesus better and help to make Him known. The YWAM Heredia base is located (view map) 12 miles east of the San Jose airport in the suburbs of San Rafael and 2 miles from the city center. The property allows for the development and efficient use of natural resources such as organic agriculture, livestock, solar and more. Training in the efficient use of natural resources allows these technologies to be taken to needy people in developing nations and elsewhere as a means to open doors for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.
You may also come to this YWAM Costa Rica base as part of a short term team for 1-3 weeks or as an individual volunteer, called a Mission Builder, for short term outreaches and various ministries and projects. Please explore and enjoy our website for much more information and detail.
Whether you are bringing an adult team from your church, a youth group, a family group or any other group of people, your lives will change. Your work will make an eternal impact on the lives you minister to during outreach and/or projects on the base. God always touches the lives of those who go on missions as well as those whom you come in contact with and share your lives along with the gospel. No one goes home the same.

Our mission is to inspire our staff and students to have a passion for the lost and to equip them with the necessary tools to reach them. We accomplish this by providing them with both local and oversea opportunities to reach the unreached and serve the rural poor. They will learn how to minister to these individuals’ spiritual needs as well as how to provide practical assistance for their physical needs. YWAM Heredia is unique in that we teach sustainable agriculture by creating systems to receive clean water, hygiene, and sanitation.
