[edit] Description of Service

I served a year in Socha, Dept. of Boyaca, and my 2nd year assigned to the Colombian Institute of Agrarian Reform (INCORA), in Duitama. My Socha assignment was as a community development Volunteer. Follwing service, I worked as a volunteer for Cesar Chavez, in organizing grape boycotts. Then, I got a Master's in Education from the University of Tennessee, and lived for the next 20 years in Tennessee, Puerto Rico, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Connecticut. In each of these places, I worked as a training and development professional, with particular interests in working for multi-nationals with interested in Latin America.

I returned to my home state of California, and have been here since 1990. I presently live in Riverside.

[edit] About Anthony (Tony) Griffin Today

It's given me an almost overweeing sense of self-confidence, and a love of working with Spanish-speakers. Like many others, it was a defining period in my life.
