Young Life / Vida Joven Established: 1982

Its name means "rich coast." More than four million people live in Costa Rica, which has become one of the most visited countries the in Central American region. Young Life (Vida Joven) has begun to blossom throughout the nation under the leadership of Randall Barboza who, along with Mario Mora and Naty Pacheco, continue to support and encourage leaders in neighborhood ministries. 

Costa Rica has an established international school ministry and a Capernaum ministry, which is Young Life's outreach to kids with disabilities. A new YoungLives initiative is growing in three communities where mentors live and share their lives with teen moms. Randall and his team have hearts that ache for marginalized kids. They have poured much of their efforts into leadership development in order to produce new resources in the midst of the culture's growing compassionate awareness.
