“You need this. You need it because the important thing you can do as a youngish adult/early 20-something/pre-professional/student is to travel, do something totally out of the ordinary, and force yourself to consider who you are in a new context. Most important learning experience possible. Don’t make excuses regarding income, distance, or long-term plans. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” — From a past VACorps participant.
