Peace Corps Prep Program to be Offered


A Peace Corps Prep information meeting will occur at 7 p.m. Feb. 21 in the Student Union Building Alumni Room.

Ranked among the top 20 volunteer-producing midsized schools in the nation, Truman, in partnership with the United States Peace Corps, is able to offer Peace Corps Prep certification. Participants can join the more than 215,000 volunteers who have made a difference in 140 countries around the world in the last 40 years.

The Peace Corps Prep program is open to all majors and allows student to complete coursework and fieldwork relevant to international service. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive recognition on co-curricular transcripts and a signed certificate from the Peace Corps. While certification does not guarantee acceptance into the Peace Corps, it gives a competitive advantage in the application process.

The Peace Corps Prep program prepares students for international development fieldwork and potential Peace Corps service through interrelated coursework, hands-on experience and professional development support.
