Summary
A School for Others is a personal memoir about volunteering with the Peace Corps in Belize, Central America. Stories of personal growth, unintentional altruism and true love unravel in action-filled adventures and historical accounts. LeBard chronicles his five years in a Mayan village during transformative times not just for himself but also for Belize. While this tiny Caribbean country struggles with globalization and a newly-achieved independence, drug wars and American TV infiltrate village life.
