Rachel Youngberg

In May 2017 Rachel graduated from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC with a degree in Early Childhood Education. During her time in DC, she fell in love with ultimate Frisbee, service, and her Catholic faith. Shortly after graduation, she jumped on a plane to Honduras to do a year of service with Amigos de Jesús!

While volunteering with Amigos, Rachel taught various levels of EducaTodos (a Honduran mandated educational program where struggling students are pulled out and put into a classroom that is more focused on a slow pace and individualized attention), worked as the librarian, and helped with social media and photography. Throughout this last year, Rachel has fallen in love with Honduras, its culture, and the children at Amigos de Jesus. She is excited to be staying at Amigos for another year, but this time around as a BECA volunteer!

In her spare time, Rachel enjoys a variety of activities. She will never back down from a chance at a friendly competition whether it have to do with sports, games, or anything you can imagine! She enjoys exercise of any kind, being outdoors, doing puzzles, travelling, singing, dancing, doing crafts, and anything that could be considered an adventure!
