The Peace Corps

The Peace Corps is housed in over 60 countries around the world. People can volunteer in different fields for the peach corps such as, agriculture, education, health, community and economic development, environment, and youth in development.

The Peace Corps provides each Volunteer with housing and a living stipend that enables them to live in a manner like 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 $10,000 (pre-tax) to help with the transition to life back home. This money is yours to use as you wish. They also provide student loan benefits, travel benefits, medical and dental benefits, and much more!
