I am an RPCV (Tonga-94-97)conducting my dissertation on cultural re-adjustment (also known as repatriate distress, reverse culture shock or re-entry shock) among RPCVs who have returned to the U.S. within the past year.

If you have returned within the past year, please consider helping me to document and better understand this under-researched but common experience. Participation involves completing an anonymous 15-minute questionnaire. I can be reached through email or phone, at, or (805)708-6355.

Thank you!

Part-time Employment Opportunity
Community Representative

Dear Peace Corps Friends,

AYUSA International is a non-profit high school foreign exchange student organization. We welcome teenagers from over 60 countries worldwide and provide host family placement and ongoing supervision for 5 and 10 month academic programs. We are a community of citizens who believe it is our privilege and our greatest responsibility to help create a worldwide family who will embrace our children with an accepting, open heart wherever they choose to live.

As Peace Corps alumni, we know you share this vision and we invite you to apply for the position of Community Representative. The ideal candidate should enjoy teenagers, have a strong desire to communicate cross-culturally and feel comfortable networking in the community. Basic responsibilities include recruiting and interviewing host families, providing ongoing support to families and students and maintaining professional relationships with local high schools.

This position pays a stipend per student as well as travel incentives, leadership enhancement opportunities, and most of all, a chance to promote a more peaceful world for our youth to inherit.

Full training and ongoing support is provided through one of several branch offices located in California. Please apply to or phone toll-free 1-888-552-9872.
