"Calvin College didn't just give me theoretical knowledge, it taught me how to apply what I learned in life. As a Youth Development Volunteer in Peace Corps Guatemala, I use many of the skills that I acquired at Calvin. Some of these are public speaking, program developing, conducting developmental history assessments, and conducting community needs assessments; all skills fortified and strengthened by the social work department. Now, as I spend my days developing and training youth development workers in Guatemala, creating new programs, and working with special needs families, I do so with ease. Peace Corps did its part to train me before beginning my project but Calvin had already laid the strong foundation. I came into this job prepared."
