Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understandably difficult to match volunteers skills with petitioning hosts, but it would be good to listen to a volunteers stated desires and preferences a bit more when making final site selection.

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

    Pros

    You have the freedom to explore your professional interests while having the network of volunteers and staff assist you. You can make it as meaningful as you want it. I keep things busy and had plenty of experiences that I can pull from, even several years later

    Cons

    The hardest part is working inside of another culture -- and two years is a short time to really affect much.
