IU Kelley School of Business Returns to Caribe Sur

Students from the Kelley School of Business are returning to Costa Rica for the third year through a partnership between the Rich Coast Project and Kelley Initiatives for Social Impact.

A group of 12 business students arrive to Puerto Viejo on Sunday, March 12, to provide a week of business consulting the Rich Coast Project. Past service learning collaborations with KISI have taken students to Manzanillo and Punta Uva, where they assisted in interview collection and transcription and partnered with local organizations to paint the building of a women's entrepreneur group and leave hand painted signs of conscientiousness on the beach. This year's project will be focused on the community of Puerto Viejo. 

We are especially excited to welcome back two past student volunteers as this year's trip leaders, Korbin Clark and Mia Kinder.
