I would like to join the peace core by the end of this week i will have what is called a ccna this is a network certifaction from cisco I would prefer to help the peace core with my technical skills. To be honest I am willing to relocate. But I would prefer to do this fulltime but I am not rich and can not survive on money of mine. I am not sure but does the peace take care of living arrangments when i am say in africa or will I be expected to come up with money for this on my own.

I am interested in joining the core aswell. but I do have some bill that need to get paid. Do I need to pay them off before I can join? Also is there constant drug testing?
I just wanna put all my energy into helping people out.

Hi Parker;

If you are American, go to the recruiter
nearest you [from the phone book], get an
application form, fill it out very nicely
and take it to your interviewer [details on
the form] or mail it in.

If you are accepted you will be sent a ticket
to your training area in USA. When you finish training you will get a ticket to your assigned host country for incountry training there where
money is not needed until you are assigned to
your station. At that time money is given for expenses.

There is much on this subject on PCOL at:
"Contact PCOL" and "Bulletin Board."

My son is 29 years old (American Born)and holding a degree in Communications and Political Science from California UC. He wants to work in India or South Africa. What should he do to join Peace Corp and what kind of jobs can he get.

Dear Sir/Madam,
I feel so happy to have a contact with your organization.
In 2002 for the first time in Afghanistan I met a group of medical staff from USA that introduced themselves as Peace Core members who wanted to help our hospital`s doctors and nurses for their practical training in US and so I was so much interested but as I had no official authority for signing any agreement so I fail to maintain our contact. But now that I am assistant director of our hospital(Aliabad Teaching Hospital)so i would like to have contact with your organization to get some facilities for our new doctors and nurses training in abroad

Kind regards
Dr. Kahir Sina
