The Peace Corps is a volunteer program operated by the US government to send Americans to live and work in developing countries. They try to improve conditions in the host countries, give a positive perception of Americans abroad, and give unsurpassed cross-cultural experience to the volunteers. Most Peace Corps programs require a four-year degree, but a few can be had with an AA/AS and work experience. In some cases, a volunteer can get in with no degree, but they'll need a lot of applicable work experience in their field.<br> + <br> + The main PC program areas are: health, agriculture, education, business development, environment, and information technology. The Peace Corps currently operates in 74 countries. Foreign language knowledge is not required, but is a benefit when applying to the program. Applicants should also have a lot of volunteer and/or cross-cultural experience.<br> + <br> + The application process can take 6-12 months, so it is recommended to start applying early. There is an initial online application that requires a resume, two essays, and a health questionnaire. After that is the interview, and waiting for the San Fransisco office to process everything. If you look like a good candidate, you'll enter the nomination period. They'll give you a vague idea of where they'd like to send you and what field you would work in. After that is medical clearance, which can take several months. All tests need to come back clear and you need to have any dental work, etc taken care of. If you are cleared, you'll be offered an invitation for a specific country and job. Once you accept your invitation, all that's left is to enjoy your time at home, pack, and wait for your plane ticket!</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 6: </td> <td> Line 12: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ They frequently have recruiting events and information sessions on campus and often participate in Education Abroad events.</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 7: </td> <td> Line 14: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- [[Include(Seed)]]</span> </td> <td> <span>+ The campus recruiter is Erica Chernoh.
