Pre Peace Corps Mentoring

Nearly all Returned Volunteers will tell you that joining Peace Corps was the biggest life changing decision they have ever made. It can be filled with excitement and euphoria mingled with times of self-doubt and stress. Our returned Volunteer mentors are available to give honest advice, listen to your concerns, help you through the decision process, through the rough patches and finally, to prepare to leave for service. If you have questions please contact us at
