I worked at Peace Corps part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Volunteers are GREAT people to have known

Cons

My program was disorganized: there were too many people sent and not enough for everyone to do. Many people ended up teaching english instead of what they were assigned to do. I was treated terribly after a medical emergency sent me back to the USA. I tried to re-apply again but was laughed at as they 'pitied' what had happened previously.

    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the Peace Corps you are given the opportunity to live the life of another culture, not just experience it.

    Cons

    You spend much of your time explaining what the Peace Corps is, when deep down you have questions yourself. Why am I here?
