Explore Your Global Future with the Peace Corps: Panel Discussion
October 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Join to learn about the challenging, rewarding and inspirational moments of Peace Corps service from a panel of returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
Peace Corps sends volunteers to serve in over 60 countries around the globe. Volunteers must be American citizens and come from all backgrounds to represent the diversity of America abroad. They work at a grassroots level in six different program areas—education, health, environment, youth development, agriculture and community economic development—for a period of 27 months. Volunteers receive transportation to and from the country, a monthly living stipend, vacation and health benefits, and significant training. The Peace Corps provides loan deferment options and, after completing service, volunteers receive a readjustment allowance of over $9,000, lifetime eligibility for certain graduate school fellowships and one year of preferential hiring for federal positions. Peace Corps service is a life-changing experience that develops leadership skills and opens doors professionally and academically. Join this virtual panel to hear from returned Peace Corps volunteers and learn how the Peace Corps can help you explore your global future.
