you have to have a certain amount of expierence work in 1 or more of the areas the peace corps works in. They're sending you oversea's into under developed countries, on your own, to help a country as a whole. Usually a bachelors degree is required, some sort of proof your qualified and serious about your commitment to volunteer in the peace corps.

Hi, I am 15 and I would sacrifice anything to get to Africa and do service work. I feel very passionately about this and I think that joining the Peace Corps would be the best way to proceed with my dream. I need to know what i should be doing though, so that i can join after i graduate from either high school or collage. Many carreir options are open to me right now, and i need to choose something that will get my to Africa to help. i will do anything.

I'm 16 and I want to join the peace core once I'm done with high school. I want to know if I have to go to college first and get a bachelors or if I can go straight from high school. Also, is a biology major a good one for volunteering for health related tasks?

IT'S PEACE CORPS, GUYS. Not Core. If you want to join it, a good place to start would be to learn how to spell it.

You have to have a college degree or significant work experience before joining. I hope you will all do more research instead of waiting for someone on this site to answer.
