My experience as a YCI volunteer in Costa Rica has served as one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. It was during this time that my passion for youth development was cultivated! I had the chance to work alongside some of the most driven young people.
I recommend YCI to anyone who wants to learn and grow by doing! I had the chance to participate in a dynamic project that allowed me to work with my hands and facilitate learning through engaging in meaningful conversation, about almost anything!
I continue to value my experience as a volunteer and hope that many more people are able to have the opportunity to engage in this kind of learning.
