I worked with elementary kids for a program that helps kids with school and outside of school. it's for kids who aren't doing well in school, or is not in the best situation no matter the case.

In 2012 I went to Europe with a Program called "People To People" that was created by Dwight D. Eisenhower. Someone has to nominate you to go! You then have to go through a 1-1 interview. If you make it past the first interview you then move on to a group interview. I was the only one chosen from Iowa, the rest were from Nebraska. There was 40 of us! The program is designed to help understand other cultures and what their everyday life is like.
