Dear Returned Peace Corps Volunteers,
I am writing to you because of your unique interest in building cultural bridges and bringing nations closer together through grass roots efforts. I am a Regional Director for a not-for-profit foreign exchange program called PAX which brings between 600-800 high school students to the U.S. every year for academic exchange. Our mission is to promote international peace, friendship and understanding through the cross-cultural exchange and education of world citizens.
Right now we are preparing to place students in homestays for our 2003-2004 academic year and we are looking for new community coordinators to help us do this. We hire the field staff as independent contractors to help us find good host families and to get our students enrolled in local high schools. Coordinators are paid $500 per student placed for the full academic year and are eligible for travel benefits and the annual National Meeting.
As part of the third goal of the Peace Corps, you are already looking for ways to promote these values in your own local communities. We would love your help in finding good placements for our students.
PAX is designated by the State Department to do this important work for our students. We are CSIET (Council for Standards on International Educational Travel) approved and have been in business for close to 10 years.
Whether you've been back 1 year or 20 years, this job would give you the opportunity to reconnect with the culture you embraced as a volunteer, or it would put you in touch with new cultures. Our students come from all over the world and have all had a minimum of 3 years of English and come with their own insurance and spending money. They are excited to learn more about America and the American way of life.
If this sounds interesting to you, please let us know right away. You can reach us at 1-800-555-6211 ext 132 or by visiting our website at www.pax.org.
All the best in the work that you do day-to-day to develop a deeper understanding of other cultures besides our own.

Dear Recently Returned Peace Corps Volunteers,
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or (805)708-6355.

Dear Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of North Florida,
I am currently a volunteer in Romania steady approaching the 1-year mark. I am a recent graduate of the University of Florida and called Gainesville my home for the four years prior to joining the Peace Corps. As a TEFL volunteer, my summers are open for various projects outside of my primary assignment as an English teacher in a middle school here. This summer, I will be involved in several projects, including two TOBE camps. These camps are the boys' version of GLOW camps. There has only been one of these camps in the past, and myself and some fellow volunteers are attempting to continue and promote their use as tools for youth development. Our ultimate goal is for the communities here to adopt the idea and promote these camps on their own for future generations after Peace Corps has left.
We are currently in the planning and fundraising phase. I was hoping that your organization might have some sort of program for assisting projects such as these. If so, I would be able to send you a more formal report on our project plans and goals. I also intend on working through the Peace Corps Partership Program. Please respond as you are able. I would appreciate any information that you might have regarding this matter. Thankyou.
Jon R. Larson
