There are currently no Peace Corps Volunteer openings in Belize.

Peace Corps Volunteers are resourceful, energetic, and well-intentioned individuals who come willing and able to help communities advance along the path of healthier life styles and social development. Along this process new relationships and new bonds of friendship develop which I believe are key elements for a better and more peaceful world.”

Dr. Ramon Figueroa, Chief Executive Officer, Belize Ministry of Health
