Máximo Nivel (Maximum Level) is a family-owned, social enterprise founded in 2003. Our three intercultural centers are locally-based organizations focused on international education and cross-cultural experiences. We offer our International Volunteer Program, TEFL/TESOL Certification, Native Spanish Program, and Native English Program in three countries — Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru
Our education programs are internationally accredited and are recognized worldwide. Our success is based on our commitment to quality and the highest level of client service. We continuously invest in professional staff and first-class facilities to ensure your overall experience with us is nothing short of excellent.
VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS include orphanages/childcare, medical/healthcare, construction, environment & conservation, teaching English and social issues (poverty, religion, etc). Our projects aspire to effect positive change in the countries where we work. Volunteers provide support and protection to children without families or adequate food, shelter and education, and tutoring in English helps young students gain valuable language skills. Medical and healthcare volunteers work in hospitals and clinics alongside medical professionals and construction volunteers build and repair homes and schools for rural villages and orphaned children. Those interested in conservation and the environment have the opportunity to work with endangered turtle populations or help with reforestation projects in rainforest reserves.
THE NATIVE SPANISH PROGRAM offers both general and specialized Spanish immersion classes in all three of our locations. Native Spanish instructors, all of whom are certified teachers, provide classes in small groups, one-on-one and online via Skype. Classes in general Spanish, Spanish for Business, and Medical Spanish are available year-round.
