Open Peace Corps Response to public and cancel 27-month aimless volunteer stints

Peace Corps Volunteer (Former Employee)

ProsGreat cultural & language immersion

ConsMedical staff does not care about you; Peace Corps is solely concerned with their own reputation and image; Staff does not support volunteers; Medical issues back in the states are a much bigger issue -- Staff in DC is not timely and they make it really difficult to get reimbursed or even get in to see a specialist

Advice to Senior ManagementAssign jobs before volunteers are deployed (NOT once they are in-country); Hire better & knowledgable medical staff; Cancel Peace Corps and open Response type work to the public

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
