Bring your story home

Whether you are in the field or traveling back to the U.S. on leave, bring your story home with the World Wise Schools Correspondence Match program and Third Goal on Leave

Third Goal on Leave allows you to earn up to three extra vacation days if you return to the U.S. for leave during your service and engage in an activity that teaches the public about your host country. For instance, speak to a classroom or community group about your experience. In order to be eligible for the Third Goal on Leave program, you must take all three steps:

  1. Make your request to your Country Director for approval (minimum two weeks prior to your trip home).
  2. Inform your regional recruitment office about your activity.
  3. Tell us about your activity and we will send you official Peace Corps promotional materials to use.
