Abstract

Volunteering and traveling through Central America, I learned many lessons about what it means to be of help and service. These experiences directly led to my becoming a social worker and social work educator. More importantly, the impact of my nine months spent as a young man in this beautiful yet tragically war torn isthmus continues to shape who I am as a person. Poetry is interspersed throughout the narrative to help the reader understand these experiences on an emotional level.
