- Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer, Costa Rica
“As a Youth Development Volunteer, I work with schools, the Ministry of Health, and other local organizations to plan and implement projects focused on developing fundamental life skills in youth and on preventing school dropout, drug and alcohol use, and teenage pregnancy.
“The most important skills for my position are creative problem solving and resourcefulness, and the ability to adapt to new situations and environments.
“The challenges of working with young people and youth service providers in a developing country certainly keep you on your toes, but the rewards are profound and uniquely gratifying.
