Bryant alumna Claire Gracia ('18) joined the Peace Corps in Peru in September of this year. Here is the message she sent about her current work:
"In just another week, I’ll be finishing up Pre-Service Training and will be moving to my site for the next two years! I’m heading to Pedro Ruiz Gallo, an urban town in the center of Amazonas, in Northern Peru. Over the past three months, I have been learning about sustainable development, Peruvian culture, and the Youth Development framework. I’ve had a chance to practice my Spanish with my host family and classes at training. As a Youth Development Facilitator, I will be working with the local municipality, schools and health posts to promote leadership and employability in youth, support youth led projects and work with parents to improve communication with their children. I’m excited to move to my new community and start working!"
