Rogue Valley Student Spends Gap Year In Africa

Global Citizen Year
/

Erik Oline admits he knew next to nothing about Senegal when he graduated from Ashland High School a year ago. 

That changed quickly, as Erik moved to Senegal for his "gap year," signing up with Global Citizen Year

He recently returned from his eye-opening experience in Western Africa, where he learned much more than the name of the capital (Dakar).  Erik Oline visits the studio with news of his journey.
