In the past 5 years, over 50 NU students and alumni have taken the call and served as Peace Corps Volunteers. Learn about the Peace Corps, the application process, and how your skills and interests make you an ideal candidate. You’re also welcome to ask questions about non-profits or other job search issues.
The Peace Corps traces its roots and mission to 1960, when then-Senator John F. Kennedy challenged students at the University of Michigan to serve their country in the cause of peace by living and working in developing countries. From that inspiration grew an agency of the federal government devoted to world peace and friendship.
Since that time, 200,000+ Peace Corps Volunteers have served in 139 host countries to work on issues ranging from AIDS education to information technology and environmental preservation.
