The (Unofficial) Peace Corps Bulletin Board

Greetings! You are visitor 31404 since September 20th, 1996.

The Unofficial Peace Corps Bulletin Board is composed of two parts: the top part, where you can post your bulletin board item, and the bottom part, where you can do a keyword search to see what is on the bulletin board that would be of interest to you. Click here to jump to the search section.

This board is set up to accept three types of postings: “In Search Of....” postings, announcements, and general questions. Please note: if you are a soon to be departing Peace Corps volunteer looking to find others like you, or looking for info from returned PCV's, don't post here! Instead, go to my Peace Corps Information Network page. Also, if you want general info on joining the Peace Corps, please check out Section Three of this page.

By the way, this page had a bug in it for a while.... which cause many of the messages have an erroneous date (Feb. 18, 1997.) Therefore, many of the messages with that date are considerably more recent. Sorry about that.... the bug is now fixed (as of June 12, 1997).

The NPCA has a page similar to this which you also might like to check out. It's called Finding Friends. The NPCA page limits postings to only 7 days, however, while I'll be more generous.... your postings here will get a run of about a year. (Note: on January 17, 1998, I deleted all messages posted in 1996.)

I reserve the right to delete postings I deem to be inappropriate.



Where do you live now?:

Into which category does your posting fall:


Enter below, in ALL CAPS, keywords to help others find your posting when they search the bulletin board database. Use several keywords if you like.... I don't mind. But note: the most effective keywords are probably country names.



Please leave your message below. Sorry I don't have a more convenient text box, but it seems to cause problems with the search function. Don't be fooled by the size of the box.... you can type a message of up to about 30 words. Any longer than that and it may get truncated when you post it.
Please leave your message below:


NOTE: Your name, e-mail and announcements will be posted to the Unofficial Peace Corps Bulletin Board immediately after you click the Post My Message button.

For personal notes or comments -- please e-mail ....

2. Search The Unofficial Peace Corps Bulletin Board!

All names are hotlinked. Click on the name to send the person e-mail.

Note: the search function is (unfortunately) CASE SENSITIVE! When entering you search keyword, use ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. You need not type the full word.

When in doubt, use word fragments: AGRICUL will find both AGRICULTURE and AGRICULTURAL.

To see the entire contents of the board, enter a single space as the search key.

Examples of possible search keys (ANDs etc. don't work):

3. Quick Information for Prospective Volunteers.

If you've come to this page looking for information on how to join the Peace Corps, you can contact a recruiter for the Peace Corps by calling 800-424-8580 and then press 1.

There are several good sites on this page for getting Peace Corps info, including the Official Peace Corps Home Page - How to Volunteer. You can fill out a form to get an information packet from the Peace Corps at Official Peace Corps Get an Information Packet Page. By the way, I'm just about positive you have to be a U.S. citizen to join the Peace Corps.

You'll also find a wealth of information at the Peace Corps at the University of Maine page.

Also, be sure to visit my my Peace Corps Crossroads Page.
