Check out Bankass.com if the National Peace Corps Association won't work on your issues related to Peace Corps. The National Peace Corps Board doesn't even try to challenge Peace Corps policy. Years ago they did, but now all their board members won't work on Veterans Rights for Volunteers, Volunteers have Legal Representation during and after service, danger pay after service if you are serving in a difficult area, stafford student loans paid for since you are a veteran, peace corps medical services be changed thru mandating congressional legislation (Peace Corps Medical Services is not a hospital in the District of Columbia, by the way there have been ten volunteers killed since 1996 Dane, Cheick and mr. Keaton you should be on the hill advocating for two volunteers at every site throughout the world for security of volunteers.
