Staff goes above and beyond!

The Pathfinder staff goes above and beyond their administrative roles to create deeply personal relationships with participants. Each person I interacted with made a point to get to know me, and I believe that the deeper understanding created was integral to my feeling of belonging. It provided me with a strong support system on top of the local mentor connection and my host family. As a result, their guidance of my introspection and activity/project planning was all the more insightful and helpful to me. I have formed invaluable relationships in Costa Rica, both in and out of the program. This is the first time I have ever experienced such a deep sense of belonging outside of family and long-time friends. I only regret that I couldn't stay longer! But no matter -- what I learned about myself stays with me, and that is the greatest gift that everyone I met through Pathfinder provided me with.
