Maybe you've talked to your friends about the Peace Corps, or even attended a recruiting event. Now what do you do? How do you know if you're qualified to join the Peace Corps? And how do you go about applying?

Serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer means 27 months of hard work. It takes determination, flexibility, patience, and a sense of humor. And while applying to the Peace Corps is easier than being a Volunteer, the qualities that make a good Volunteer will also come in handy during the application process.
