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 base is on 7 beautiful acres at an elevation of 5100 feet with an average year round temperature of 72 degrees. The property is 24,000 sq meters (just under 7 acres) and 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.
The base provides multiple training schools accredited by University of the Nations with previous outreaches to many countries within Amazonia, East Africa, and the Middle East. We are part of the YWAM Family of Ministries. 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.
