International Programs to Celebrate Peace Corps Week Feb. 27-March 3

The Office of International Programs will host a series of events designed to showcase and celebrate Peace Corps service during the week of Feb. 27-March 3.

Peace Corps Week commemorates President Kennedy’s establishment of the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961. During this annual event, the Peace Corps community celebrates the ways Peace Corps makes a difference at home and abroad and renews its commitment to service.

Join Peace Corps Recruiter Amanda Denney and AmeriCorps NCCC Community Relations Specialist Ted Rivera for a joint information session on opportunities within these organizations Feb. 27 from 4-6 p.m. in Foy Hall 208. In addition to the presentation, Denney and Rivera will be available to meet one-on-one with interested students. Denney will also be available to answer questions at the All Majors Career Expo Feb. 28 and will give a brief presentation at the Liberal Arts Diversity Symposium March 2.

A Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Career Panel for the College of Agriculture will be held March 3 from 12-1 p.m. in Comer Hall 207. Returned Peace Corps volunteers will discuss the impact their service had on their professional and personal lives and will answer questions from interested students and others.
