After Peace Corps
Returned Volunteers use the skills and experiences they gained overseas to enhance virtually every sector of our society - Congress, the Executive Branch, the Foreign Service, business, finance, trade, health care, and social services.
Today over 210,000 returned Volunteers can be found in every walk of life, and many say their Peace Corps service had a profound impact on their careers. Former Volunteers possess a high level of confidence, independent judgment, and cross-cultural resourcefulness that are recognized by employers in all professions.
