Get Involved

Thanks again for your interest in Bricks to Bread and for supporting our mission to help change the lives of women and children within the impoverished regions of Costa Rica!

We have two volunteer opportunities:


First opportunity: Volunteer during one of our semi-weekly baking days.  There are three phases to our bread baking process; preparing the dough, forming the loaves and baking.  Check out the section to the left to read more.


     There are three shifts:

  1. Preparing the dough the night before
  2. Forming the loaves in the morning
  3. Baking the bread mid-day

     Time:  Each shift takes 2-3 hours depending on the amount of bread we bake and the temperature of the oven.

  1. Preparing dough:  8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. the night before
  2. Form the loaves:  9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
  3. Bake bread:  11:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.


Second opportunity: Be a part of a Volunteer Trip Experience and travel to Costa Rica with us for 10 days and volunteer on one of our oven projects!

If you are interested in volunteering for either of these opportunities please email us, we’d be more than happy to send you more information.
