The Peace Corps is a great symbol of assistance around the world — an opportunity for men and women of all ages to help those less fortunate.

Many people want to join the Peace Corps, and more than 160,000 people have since it was established by President Kennedy in 1961. But many more wonder what the Peace Corps involves and what they need to know before they can volunteer for this life-changing service. This informative book will guide you through the process of not only deciding whether you want to join the Peace Corps, but of showing you everything you will experience and need along the way. You will learn: the basic lingo and information needed for the application process, the specific qualifications to join and what you can do to boost your chances of submitting a winning application, how to prepare for your service, how to prepare for your service and training, what to bring, and what to expect, how to stay in touch with home through the proper channels and how much travel, social interaction, and free time you will be permitted, and much more.

Finally, the process of returning to normal life will be hard, but this book will walk you through the procedure for returning home with a full section on how to adjust to your life. Complete with case studies and advice from past volunteers, this book is a valuable resource for potential Peace Corp volunteers.
