I would like to know about joining the peace core. I know, or i've heard,that you have to have at least four years of college. Is it true.
Also i would like to know if the peace core is stationed in russia.
I love our country. We could share the happiness.

To find out if you are qualified to join the Peace Corps, go to the Peace Corps web site and take this quiz:

"By now, you probably know that you have to be at least 18 years old and a U.S. citizen. Beyond these requirements, how do you know if you're qualified to become a Peace Corps Volunteer? Use the quick calculator to find out."
The Peace Corps is no longer in Russia.

Best Regards,

Kate - Check out ... You can also find a contact phone/email for a recruiter in your area at this site.

Generally, PCVs have completed college (98% or so) or have acquired requisite experience before applying and being invited to serve. Think about college first, then Peace Corps. PC has a Master's International program for college grads who decide to pursue a master's degree and incorporate PC service into the program. Most colleges will have a PC representative on campus and/or former PCVs in the area with whom students can visit.
