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! 

About the Peace Corps: Read more or watch a video about what it's like to be a Volunteer including what Volunteers do, where they go, and the many benefits of Peace Corps service. Or apply now to begin your life-defining experience.
