    My field is technically real estate development with a focus on low-income and affordable housing and urban redevelopment. I've looked into teaching English overseas, but a lot of the programs seem to charge money to get certified and I just can't afford that... not to mention, I have a Great Dane (who I've had longer than being unemployed) who is my baby and there really is no safe way to move overseas with a giant breed dog.

    USCG? Is that the United States Coast Guard? I'll look into it. I know nothing about it, but I'm willing to do whatever it takes. I'm open to changing paths, especially if it meant I could help others while doing it. I've looked into Americorps, Teach For America and similar programs, but haven't found anything I'm qualified for just yet.
