William King from Palm Beach, Florida, has been working on a Youth Speak Out International project at the Escuela Pochotal in Playa Hermosa to help the kids learn about recycling for positive global change. His program has given the students the opportunity to speak out about the need for Costa Rica to recycle and the opportunity to job-shadow employees at area businesses so they can learn about cutting down on waste and recycling. For more information or to help out the cause, visit www.youthspeakoutint.org.
