Early Bird Program

Are you the kind of person who plans best based on personal experience? Perhaps you have never been to Central America and want to better understand what you should pack and how you should plan for your BECA experience? Or, maybe you have been to the region 15 times and would love to contextualize BECA into those past experiences?

Well, here's the great news – you don't have to wait for your experience to begin to see BECA "en accion." BECA's Early Bird program recognizes those who sign on early with a few perks designed to maximize a volunteer's preparedness for the BECA experience.
