Base is getting busy!
Today, unfortunately, we say good-bye to our 24-Day Multi-Element course. They will head into San Jose city proper today to see some sites and do some souvenir shopping. Tonight they have their final dinner together before flying home tomorrow. One students said of the experience:
“I learned that testing your fears is important in slowly overcoming them.”
On Sunday we have THREE groups flying in, for a total of 20 students! The first group, Youth Business Initiative from D.C. Metro, will be here for nine days with 10 students, led by our very own Ryan Teremy, Felipe Lopez Salazar, Joe Ewing, Zach Allen, and Alex Cook.
YBI helps inner-city, at-risk youth through a mentor system, and they are using their CRROBS’ experience to train next year’s senior leaders for YBI’s Mentor Program.
The second and third fly-ins, of 10 students total, are our Reef & Rainforest and Multi-Element. Led by Carlos Grenados, Kendra Obom, and 3-4 trainees, this group will head to Porton Rojo on Monday to begin a 3-day hike.
Bienvenidos a todos!
