Peace Corps Information Session

Wed, Jan 23, 5:00-6:00pm

The Peace Corps is seeking dedicated people to fill thousands of positions around the world.  The Peace Corps has over 9,000 volunteers serving in over 70 countries. Volunteers serve for 27 months and are placed based on their skills and the needs of the countries. Founded by President John F. Kennedy, the Peace Corps was created to provide education and technical training to citizens of other countries and to foster cross-cultural exchange.   Serving in the Peace Corps has many professional and personal benefits such as deferment of student loans, free medical and dental care, grad school programs with financial assistance, and two years of international work experience, to name a few.
