Considering the Peace Corps? Returned volunteer? Making career decisions?
This panel was created not only to celebrate the Peace Corps’ 50th anniversary, but to give the inside scoop on the experience, both during and after a volunteer’s time abroad. We also want to know how the Peace Corps can affect one’s career trajectory, and spend time socializing with people who share interests!!! Come join us.
