Great experience - challenges well worth the outcomes

Peace Corps Volunteer (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsOpportunity to live in a new place and truly integrate with a local community and culture. Participate in local development. Develop soft skills that will become marketable post-service.

ConsDisconnect between country staff and volunteers, and huge disconnect between Peace Corps HQ and volunteers on the ground. Small stipend, and readjustment allowance post-service is very small.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
