How can I request that a returned Volunteer speak to my students?

Our Global Connections program matches educators with returned Volunteers who can speak to K-12 students about their Peace Corps experience. We suggest college educators contact their local Peace Corps Recruiter to learn more.

Can Peace Corps service count toward a teaching certification?

There are certain states in which Peace Corps service can be used to count towards certification requirements. Each state has its own policies, which can be found in State and Territorial Teaching Certification Benefits [PDF].
