Learn what it takes to serve in the Peace Corps

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Peace Corps is actively searching for highly qualified individuals. Volunteers live and serve in developing countries as a member of the local community. The time spent working abroad helps individuals develop practical life-skills as well as professional skills that are important for later employment.

An information session about what it takes to join the Peace Corps will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 4, in the Career Services Center. Students interested in learning more about this opportunity should plan to attend. For more information, please visit http://studentaffairs.psu.edu/career/students/PeaceCorps.shtml.

Penn State seniors interested in serving abroad in the summer or early fall of 2012 need to get their applications in by Saturday, Oct. 1.

In addition to the information session, returned Peace Corps volunteers in Centre County are having a potluck dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 6,  for students interested in learning more about the Peace Corps. Volunteers who worked abroad for two years will speak about their experience while serving dishes from their various places of assignment. The location has yet to be determined, but those interested in attending should contact Penn State Peace Corps recruiter Nellie Bhuttari at NGI100@sa.psu.edu, for more information.
