Peace Corps’ Virtual Service provides U.S. citizens with the unique opportunity to donate their professional skills and remotely support counterparts abroad. Early pilot participants were returned Peace Corps Volunteers, five of whom were also AmeriCorps alumni. These dedicated individuals share why there’s no set or linear path when it comes to serving communities.
Upon arriving to my school, the first thing I asked for
was a classroom or anything that could potentially be used as one. More than
anything, I knew that I had to have a designated space to teach in, that I
could call my own. I did not want to have to trudge all my belongings from one
class to the next, and I desperately wanted a space that my students and I felt
belonged to us, specifically, to learn in.
