It’s about this time of the year that soon to be college graduates start to think about life beyond college.  Among the various international experiences available to them is volunteering for the Peace Corps.  Established in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy, Peace Corps has worked in over 140 countries around the world improving education, advancing community development, and alleviating poverty.  There is no application deadline: applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
