Peace Corps is making a difference. Gain 21st century job preparedness through sustainable development projects with tangible results. Considering a career in International Development? Do you see yourself working overseas for the Government or perhaps a well-known international NGO? Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of community members? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider becoming a Peace Corps volunteer after graduation. Today's Peace Corps is working in emerging and essential areas such as sustainable agriculture and microfinance, and contributing to the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. The application process takes about a year from the day you apply to the time you could potentially go overseas, so NOW is the time to start preparing!
Peace Corps is an international development agency established in 1961 by John F. Kennedy. It was established as, and remains, an independent agency of the federal government.
The mission and three goals of Peace Corps are the same after over fifty years. 1. Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women. 2. Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served. 3. Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of all Americans. The Peace Corps is one of the best experiences you can get after college. It's a great bridge between school and full time work or grad school. Have the adventure of a life time AND greatly enhance your resume. Hiring managers know that Returned Peace Corps Volunteers offer their organizations creativity, leadership, ethics, commitment and resourcefulness.
