Just over a week after New Years, CRML will be kicking off our 2014 edition of JumpStart Costa Rica! Like last year, we’ll be providing you with updates not only from our office but also directly from the ground. Check out the top column to the right, “Our 2014 camps,” for links to each of our JumpStart 2014 sites around the country. You’ll find empty pages at the moment, but between January 9th and February 7th, 2014, they’ll fill up with stories, pictures and other media posted by our camp facilitators, with content in both English and Spanish so that all our supporters around the world can stay in the loop and follow the progress of our students.
In the meantime, for a taste of the dynamic classroom experience our students are in for next month, we invite you to peruse postings from the facilitators at the helm of last January’s 2013 edition of camps, also divided by site to the right. Not sure exactly where our JumpStart 2014 sites are located? We’ve got a map for that, which you might find interesting even if you’ve seen it before. Freshly updated, it no longer shows just where our 2014 camps will take place. For each camp, you can now find out how many students will be participating, and also see a list of the schools those students attended this year. In total, nearly 600 students from just under 100 Costa Rican schools will attend JumpStart beginning next month.
Lastly, if you’d like to become part of the team working to make JumpStart 2014 possible and help plant the seeds for a successful 2015 edition in the future, we invite you to consider making a contribution towards our cause. Support in any amount makes a tangible difference, and pledging yours takes only a few simple clicks of the mouse.
Since it’s perhaps too late to say Happy Holidays, on behalf Costa Rica Multilingüe and the entire JumpStart family, Happy New Year! We look forward to sharing our adventures with you as we roll into 2014.
