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

Sometimes a lack of site development and staff support

Advice to Management

Communicate with your volunteers

Other Employee Reviews for Peace Corps

  1. "Lifechanging"

    Pros

    It's an incredible experience and I learned so much about myself. I also learned a lot about grass roots development.

    Cons

    No clear job description, not a lot of support from administration. It's really really difficult sometimes and I often wanted to go home. But I'm glad I stuck it out.


  2. "Peace Corps still a great way to see the world and help others"

    Pros

    The language training is excellent. You get to work with some of the most interesting people you'll ever meet. Being an RPCV looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    Your hands are somewhat tied when it comes to being able to speaking openly (especially when it reflects a negative viewpoint) about your host country.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your volunteers. It's one thing to talk to them over the phone and to be receptive to them in the comfort of your office, but quite another to go out and stay with them even for a brief amount of time at their site.
