Costa Rica, anyone?

Mobility International USA's (MIUSA)Costa Rica Exchange Program Summer 2008

Last summer, I participated in an incredible program with Mobility International USA. (Here's my slideshow.) I joined several other young people interested in disability rights and traveled to Costa Rica - living with a host family, doing some volunteer work, visiting disability and tourist sites, meeting with Costa Rican disability activists, and sharing in a cross-cultural exchange. It was an intense, hard, wonderful, incredible experience. I met fascinating people and did things I'd never done before.

MIUSA is recruiting for this summer's trip. And, it's back to Costa Rica! If you or someone you know is 18 - 24 years old and interested in disability advocacy, be sure to apply. The deadline is March 28. All the details at the MIUSA website, including a great slideshow of our trip last summer.
