I was a health volunteer in Zambia.

I worked at Peace Corps full-time for more than a year

ProsPeace Corps is a truly unique experience. Their approach to development is unlike any other organization and provides its volunteers with an opportunity to experience development from the grassroots level. It sounds cliche, but if you are ready and committed to it, the experience will change your life and your perspective on the world.

ConsThe management and quality of support varies significantly by country. They country offices can be short-staffed, making it difficult for volunteers to get all the support they feel they need. However if it is truly an emergency situation, the in-country staff are there for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementVolunteer support should be a priority.
