If you’re unsure how to engage youth with special needs through your work as a Peace Corps volunteer, local associations are a good place to start.

Around my fifth time knocking on the door, though, a passerby spotted me and informed me that the association’s president would probably be there later that afternoon.
Soon enough, I met the president, who happily gave me a tour of the modest facility. Lik
