Study Abroad in Costa Rica Summer 2016
Organized by: Naiyolis Palomo
Dear friends and family members, I'm excited to inform you that I've been accepted to be part of a brief Study Abroad program this summer in Costa Rica!! This is a very exciting opportunity that I'm really looking forward to as I wasn't certain I would have had a chance to attend a program like this one before graduating this Fall. During this Study Abroad experience, I'll have a chance to learn more about the different social services programs that have a profound impact in the community I'll be residing. Some of the programs we'll be studying include: child protective services, social work and educational programs, domestic violence services, organic agriculture programs, and employment programs for women. As a social work major, this is a once in life time opportunity that will not only enhance my knowledge about these type of social services I feel passionate about, but it will also give me an opportunity to compared and contrast these services to the services that are currently provided by my community in order to evaluate their effectiveness. If you're able to make a small donation towards my study abroad experience I would truly appreciate it :) Thank you very much!
