Our Corcovado Foundation Teen Ambassador Program offers two exciting way for kids, teens, and young adults to play a vital role in the protection, preservation, and economic sustainability of Costa Rica’s precious but endangered Osa Peninsula.
Take the initiative where you live.
You’re already on social media with your own network of friends and family. Reach out to them for support of your commitment to raise money to help protect the rainforest and the kids of the Osa communities in Costa Rica. Work with your friends, talk to your parents and teachers about your interest in setting up a fundraiser. We’ll help you coordinate with Global Giving to channel your contributions to the Corcovado Foundation programs.
Ideas to take a stand where you live
Create a Kids’ Art Gallery. Have students or your children produce great works of art depicting favorite wild animals or scenes from nature and display them in an art show. Parents and friends can buy the artwork via a donation to the Corcovado Foundation.
Sponsor “Make Change for Change” for the Corcovado Foundation. Start a spare change drive for students to collect coins found around the house, in the car, and in your pockets to support wildlife and conservation on the Osa.
“Take a Stand” Set up a Take a Stand booth or table at school, the park, or in your neighborhood to host bake sale or sell refreshments and donate your proceeds to Corcovado Foundation to protect wildlife habitats in Costa Rica.
Throw a “Decades Party” for you and your friends. Relive the 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s with era-appropriate costumes and music! Ask for a door fee of $30 per person—but spend no more than $10 per person on the refreshments. You’ll have $20 per person or more to donate to the Corcovado Foundation.
Having a party to celebrate a special day? Use the Corcovado Foundation page as your party invitation and email everyone the link. Celebrate your special achievement or graduation by celebrating nature—via a Corcovado Foundation fundraiser.
Make your birthday special: Ask family and friends to donate your age in dollars to your Corcovado Foundation fundraiser.
Support wildlife and nature for your bar/bat mitzvah project. Create a Corcovado Foundation page and ask your family and friends to support you.
