It’s quiet in the office this week, because we’re missing two of our teammates, Brooke and Scott. But so far, it seems they are having fun and doing some great work in Nicaragua! (Learn more about how the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is training coaches and serving kids as a part of an educational, two-way exchange program between the United States and Nicaragua in partnership with the US Department of State.)
For updates from the road, follow them on Twitter: @Brooke_CRSF and @Scott_CRSF
Not on Twitter? We’ve gathered some highlights of their trip for the first couple days….
