The limitation of access to Peace Corps career centers to one year excludes the many RPCVs who go back to college for one or more years.

Hi! I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Eritrea 1997-98. It was so incredibly helpful to have access to the career center when I returned. I would hope that anyone who is a returned PCV would have access to it as long as he/she would need it (which means ten years from now if necessary). Thank you for taking this into consideration when you meet me a few years down the road from now. Beckie Taylor

Networking is really important for both new and older (meaning returned for a longer time) RPCVs.

Access to the career center allows a certain leg up for RPCVs and also inspired me to keep looking for a meaningful job that appreciates the multicultural understanding I gained from service and other soft skills. 10 years later.

Limiting the space would be a mistake.

I would like to hear from some new and older volunteers who have been in the Peace Corps before, those returning to a multicultural place and some stories .
I am a BA student in Iowa, and have opted to do my research paper on the Peace Corps, their responsibilities, benefits for volunteers (medical are, schooloing tuition etc.. whatever you find important). From what I've read so far, it sounds inviting for as a sound experience in the volunteering leadership.
Please, Please, send me info!!! Thanks
