Gap Year in Costa Rica

From August 2009 to May 2010, I volunteered in La Carpio, a Costa Rican slum community. While I was there, I taught math and computer classes to at-risk young women, many of whom were active gang members or teen mothers. Inevitably, I learned far more from those people than I could ever teach.
