I don't see why this would damage your image at all. In fact, I'd offer a suggestion that you try graduating high school students, as you could offer a far better option than the military, which also tries to recruit younger persons.

I got my AA from a communmity college, and then my BFA from a regular college, and then served in the Peace Corps. I learned nothing in either college that prepared me to build latrines in Jamaica. In fact, I think most people learn the skills they'll need in their host countries rather than in college.

I agree. My unltimate dream is to join the peace corps, and i cant afford anything but community college. I volunteer every year in africa and i dont think that i shouldnt be able to join just becuase i attend there. I find it really odd people need volunteers and then when someone finally steps forward their under qualified!!
