International Programs

It is our belief that young people grow most when placed in positions of exploration and discovery. Student Cultural Exchange’s international programs strive to push young people out of their respective comfort zones and into new, unfamiliar places. Our unique programs stress the importance of developing deep connections and lifelong memories with the people and places we visit. Each moment of every program is designed to help transform our travelers from eager young adults to mature global citizens with a desire to make a difference in our interconnected world.

A unique opportunity for our travelers to immerse themselves in the surf culture of Costa Rica through a combination of perfect waves, inspiring volunteer projects and breathtaking outdoor activities.  To live a life of surf, volunteering and outdoor exploration is to truly experience “Pura Vida,” the pure life.

Costa Rica, which is home to a large variety of sea turtle species, is at the forefront of the ecotourism effort to rebuild the population of this magnificent creature. At Playa Buena Vista, Student Cultural Exchange travelers live and work alongside a dedicated group of volunteers who are actively working to protect the declining sea turtle population.


Customized Programs
Student Cultural Exchange is extremely proud of our ability to design customized immersion based international programs for groups that wish to create their own program structure.  Our extensive relationships in our program locations allows SCE to tailor each program to fit the learning and cultural desires of the specific group we are working with.
