Peace Corps Info Session and Panel

March 27, 2013 - 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm (already occurred)

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy formed the Peace Corps with three goals in mind: help countries meet their need for trained men and women, help promote a better understanding of Americans around the world, and help promote a better understanding of other countries on the part of Americans. If you are inspired by these goals and interested in spending two years (plus training) in a developing country, Peace Corps service might be the right fit for you. Volunteers work in education, health, business and many other fields alongside local partners. Peace Corps provides a stipend, health insurance and a readjustment allowance upon completion of service. Learn more about job opportunities and benefits at www.peacecorps.gov. Speak to a recruiter and hear returned volunteers' stories at our info session and panel. Panelists include Peace Corps recruiter Zoe Armstrong, Janna Behrens (Ghana '95-'97) and Suzy Campos (Morocco '96-'98).
