How to Apply

“Wow! Your blog has got me so amped, I wanna become a Volunteer too!!” Yay you! Here’s how:

Application Portal 

Click here to access the Peace Corps application portal. You will need to create an applicant profile, and this makes it so that you won’t have to complete the whole thing in one go. I’ve heard that the new application only takes an hour!

Peace Corps has recently modified this process. I think it’s super awesome that you’re now able to browse for the position that speaks to you. But remember, you are still able to say that you’re willing to go anywhere, to do any job that you’re qualified to do.

Grassroots Development

Peace Corps supports a grassroots level community development model. This means that PCVs work with community members at the most basic level to help facilitate change. You bring your existing skills, you gain lasting friendships, knowledge of a new culture, new skills, and so much more. Read more about being a PCV here and browse open positions here.

Good luck!
