University Park, Pa. -- The last Peace Corps information session of the semester is at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5, in the Career Services Center. This is the time for underclassmen to start thinking about future plans after college. Come to the session to learn more about the details of Peace Corps, see a video of volunteers at their sites of service overseas, and have any questions answered.
Peace Corps is a federal agency that promotes sustainable development and global understanding to countries around the world by sending volunteers to live and work at the community level with peoples of other nations. Volunteers serve overseas for two years in agriculture, forestry, health and HIV/AIDS, youth development, business, education, engineering, urban planning and computer science. Peace Corps provides volunteers with 3 months of intensive training prior to the 2 year service, for a total of 27 months in the country of service. Peace Corps currently has over 8000 volunteers in 76 countries around the world in Africa, Central and South America, Central and Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe. We are recruiting volunteers who have a desire for adventure, a passion to serve humanity, and a will to encounter “the toughest job you’ll ever love.”
