Now, it’s easier to apply to the Peace Corps than ever. It took me nearly two years to start my service in the Kyrgyz Republic, but with the updated application process – including applying to specific posts and programs – you can begin your commitment to service now. (In fact, if you want to be a Health Education Volunteer in Kyrgyzstan like me, apply by October 15th!)
Service is a challenge. It asks a lot – dedicating two years of your life, committing your time and energy and effort to work that is hard, progress that is minute, and communities in need. Peace Corps is not about just you – it’s about what you can offer to others. It’s about how far you will go.
