    I worked at Peace Corps

    Pros

    Peace Corps does a good job of looking after its volunteers. Provides many support systems, including training, safety, and health.

    Cons

    Long duration for volunteer selection. If applying to become a volunteer, be aware that the application process can take a while, for me 9 months from applying to departure.

In an unplanned campaign speech in 1960, John F. Kennedy challenged a group of college students to devote two years of their lives to helping people in other countries.
