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

    Pros

    Learn a new language, travel, challenge yourself in ways that are truly unique and gain experience for International Development.

    Cons

    Doing bureaucratic reports about your work, following hardline rules for safety/security, the stresses of living far away perhaps in an isolated place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on making a tighter fit between a potential Volunteer's skills and their placement.
