Greta Kaempf

Returned Peace Corps Master's International Student Admitted 2013

Greta grew up in Maryland and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of North Carolina.  After several years as an early childhood educator, she entered the University of Michigan School of Social Work as part of the Peace Corps Master’s International program, studying Community Organizing with an area concentration in Children, Youth, and Families.  After her first year of MSW studies, Greta left for Guatemala to serve in the Peace Corps as a Youth Development volunteer.  Working in a rural village in the western highlands, she collaborated with local middle schools, NGOs, and the Ministry of Health to support youth in developing and achieving their educational and lifetime goals. She also worked with community leaders, parents, and youth service providers to promote positive environments and growth opportunities for community youth.  Now in her last year of MSW studies, Greta is thankful for the variety of rich learning experiences in cross-cultural community organizing she has been able to take advantage of as a PCMI student, both in the classroom in Michigan and in Guatemala.
