What do you enjoy the most from YPP? Why? 

The part of YPP I have enjoyed most would easily be the outreach days. Learning to work with the kids and figuring out ways to get the information across to them while still having fun was a welcome and enjoyable challenge.

What have you learned so far that you have found the most valuable for yourself and why? 

Learning to overplan is going to be incredibly useful for me for the rest of my life. I've found that being extra specific while planning for anything will always be easier and better than not planning enough, and this can apply everywhere.

Would you recommend YPP to any of your friends? Why? 

I would recommend YPP to my friends. It's been a really fun job, and my experiences will 100% stick with me for the rest of my life.
