Many Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) here in Costa Rica spend a large chunk of their time in schools. PCVs lead all kinds of activities depending on the sector the they work in: youth development, community economic development, or English. From leadership workshops, to computer classes and English classes, Peace Corps Volunteers never have a dull moment working with kids.
