Service doesn't have to end
Returned Volunteers can use the skills they have acquired throughout their service abroad to make an impact in over 400 agencies throughout the federal government. Careers in government offer a diverse range of opportunities for public service, including roles in international diplomacy, environmental conservation, and public health.
Returned Volunteers can use the “Peace Corps and AmeriCorps VISTA” unique hiring path to find jobs in the federal government.
Eligibility requirements to use this hiring path are at least one year of service with the Peace Corps or one year of service with AmeriCorps VISTA.
Whether you would like to serve for a shorter amount of time, virtually from anywhere in the world, or work as a Peace Corps staff member, Peace Corps offers different options to continue the call for world peace and friendship.
