Dear Peace Corps Response,
Once in a lifetime...can happen more than once.
For many of us, Peace Corps was a life-changing experience. The lessons we learned, the friendships we made, and the experiences we shared with our host country counterparts are priceless. It's hard to imagine another experience as rich and rewarding as your two years of Peace Corps service.
Or is it? What if you could return to the field--not for two years, but for six months? Or nine months? Would you do it?
Peace Corps Response offers RPCVs the chance to do just that. Rewarding short-term, high-impact assignments are opening up all the time in a variety of sectors and countries around the world. Want to learn more? Check out some of the hot opportunities featured in this special edition of Impact.
