I worked at Peace Corps as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Opportunity 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.

Cons

Disconnect 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.
