Peace Corps


 

About

Description
The Peace Corps Mission is to assist people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women. The Peace Corps promotes a better understanding of Americans to the people served, as well as promoting a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans. Some ways to get involved with the Peace Corps include: education, youth outreach, and community development (teaching basic subjects (Math, English, etc.) encourage critical thinking in classrooms, integrate issues such as health education and environmental awareness into classrooms); business development (opportunities to work in education, private businesses, public organizations, government offices, cooperatives, women's and youth groups); the environment (teaching environmental awareness, agriculture, work with small farmers to increase food production, while promoting environmental conservation practices); health (educate and promote awareness issues, such as malnutrition and safe drinking water); HIV/AIDS (provide hope and meaningful assistance to people affected by HIV/AIDS); and information technology (assist communities in capitalizing on technologies, by teaching computer/multi-media skills, developing regional data bases, implementing networks for non-governmental organizations, business, and government offices). Some benefits of participating with Peace Corps include: paid travel and living expenses, student loan deferment, $6,075 readjustment allowance, 48 days paid vacation, medical and dental care, international work experience, and non-competitive eligibility for federal jobs.
