Global Cafe to host Peace Corps information session

Global Cafe: Peace Corps Information Session

Global Café will host a Peace Corps information session from 4 to 5 p.m. March 9 in Oldfather, room 538.

The Peace Corps Volunteer program is often called life-defining by the more than 230,000 Americans who have served. Volunteers get the chance to fully integrate into a host country community and work on projects ranging from education to business development.

The Peace Corps provides each volunteer with housing and a living stipend that enables them to live in a manner similar to people in their community of service. Unlike other international volunteer programs, there is no charge to participate in the Peace Corps. There is no application fee, although costs may only be partially covered for required medical examinations during the application process.

Upon completion of two years of service, the Peace Corps provides each volunteer with more than $8,000, pre-tax, to help with the transition to life back home.

Additional information will be available at the event.
