I’m writing to urge young people considering becoming US Peace Corps Volunteers in the future to get involved in the debates going on around our country during this pandemic to help protect the future of the Peace Corps:
Having been a Peace Corps Volunteer (in the Dominican Republic), a United Nations Volunteer (in Somalia), and Peace Corps staff for almost 6 years (in Chicago with its recruitment offices, and Bulgaria – as an Administrative Officer), I can strongly recommend, for so many positive reasons, going into the field as a Peace Corps Volunteer.
Of course, it is not easy, but you will build skill sets and experience that will serve you well, getting you in the door for interviews should you seek international careers in the future.
NO time like right now to get involved. Explore the link above and get involved in advocacy for a better future…
