I worked at Peace Corps as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Its one of the toughest jobs that i came to love , not necessarily because of staff but because of how rewarding it was - in terms of the potential long term impact of volunteers trained .A company that makes impact in the lives of others , and not just about revenue. Provides training for staff.

Cons

Very lengthy application and interview process / experience. Unrealistic timelines set for staff . During preservice training, Trainers required to live in under developed communities with volunteers without adequate support or additional compensation.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to live abroad and get to know a different culture and new language. My two years with the peace corps really was an adventure of a lifetime.

    Cons

    You don't get to decide where you go or what you do. I don't think this is necessarily a con unless your close minded. If you are close minded, you might want to reconsider volunteering with pc.
