Volunteer Openings in Sierra Leone

There are currently no Peace Corps Volunteer openings in Sierra Leone.

Peace Corps Volunteers "serve," not "help." "Help" denotes a paternalistic idea that we know what is best. Peace Corps Volunteers work with community partners to determine what should be done and how. Without their help Volunteers cannot accomplish anything.
