Student Testimonial

 "I was a volunteer in the first Youth Development program in Peace Corps Cameroon’s history. My work mainly focused on developing the program from the ground up, and promoting girls' and women's empowerment in my community. I value the unique opportunity I had to build the "YD" program, but also to work with so many dynamic and motivated community members, and give them the tools they needed to empower youth in their communities.” - Shanna Beech (BA, Political Science, 2011)
