im still in highschool but I have done many research about the peace corp and i really would love to be apart of something like the peace crop. I was just wondering how hard it is to get in, and if having a college education would be helpful for getting in?

Dear Amy,

Thanks for your interest in the Peace Corps.

It is pretty hard to get into the Peace Corps now with the agency only accepting about one in three applicants.

The truth of the matter is that unless you have a special skill like farming, a college education is almost always required to serve.

We'll see you in a few years.

Best regards,
