Help farmers market their products. Develop alternatives to wood as a fuel source. Start a recycling program. Promote environmentally friendly farming practices. Peace Corps agriculture and environment Volunteers do all of this, and much more!

Anyone who is interested in learning more about Peace Corps — named one of Business Week’s “Top 25 Places to Launch a Career” in 2008 — is welcome to participate.

At the event, returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Peace Corps staff will speak about their overseas experiences and answer your questions on how to be competitive for Peace Corps service. Bring your friends/family and your questions!

If you have experience in gardening, landscaping or environmental education or a degree in agriculture, environmental science, forestry, or agribusiness, we want to talk to you.

Visit to find out more about the Peace Corps’ agricultural projects or to learn about environmental projects.
