By: Anna Williams, Peace Corps Recruiter
If you’re looking for a life changing experience abroad with a commitment to community, look no further than the Peace Corps.
From Albania to Zambia, Peace Corps volunteers serve all over the world during their 27 month commitment. During this time they get to know the communities they live and work in, local languages and technical skills required for the job. And given that, volunteers work in six sectors including education, youth in development, environment, community economic development, health and agriculture. There is something for everyone.
While volunteers get the opportunity to live abroad, supported with a living stipend and full medical benefits, the benefits continue after service as well. Benefits after service include a readjustment allowance, non-compete eligibility with the federal government, and a passionate network of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers all over the country and world.
Here at UNC you can connect with our on campus recruiter housed in University Career Services to get your questions asked, apply and head out on your Peace Corps journey!
