    I worked at Peace Corps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a volunteer, you have a large degree of autonomy in what you do. Two years allows you to really get to know a community and work on projects that can actually help.

    Cons

    Lots of variability between posts, so you've got to be independent and make the most of any situation.

    I worked at Peace Corps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent volunteer support in every aspect including health, mental, and administrative. I received the best medical care of my life.

    Cons

    Pay as a volunteer is abysmal and I did not receive a pay raise my entire 2 years of service, despite filling out several living allowance surveys and obvious signs of incredible cost of living increases in the country. Stipend was not enough to live on and I had to support myself with outside funding.
