What is Peace Corps Drop-in Advising?

During Peace Corps Drop-in Advising, students meet with a former member of the Peace Corps who is now working to share their personal experience and information about joining the Peace Corps to interested students. The Peace Corps recruiter can answer many kinds of questions about the logistics, benefits, and unique challenges and rewards of joining the Peace Corps after graduation during your 10-15 minute drop-in session. No appointment is required; first come, first served.
