'''Peace Corps Response''' (PCR) provides opportunities for returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) or experienced professionals to undertake short-term, high-impact assignments in various posts around the world. Its inception as Crisis Corps in 1996 modeled the National Peace Corps Association's successful Emergency Response Network (ERN) of RPCVs willing to respond to crises when needed. First brought about in response to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, Peace Corps Response has fielded over 1000 Volunteers in more than 40 countries. Today, qualified RPCVs can put their professional skills and academic training to work as Peace Corps Response Volunteers; gaining additional international experience while imparting technical expertise critical to partner organizations and the communities they serve.
 +
 +
PCR Volunteers are able to make valued contributions because they come equipped with the language, technical and cross-cultural skills needed to create an immediate impact. PCR works in seven broad program areas: agriculture and environment, community and youth development, business/NGO development and information technology, disaster preparedness and response, education and teacher training, health and HIV/AIDS, and the Global Health Service Partnership.

All Peace Corps Response applicants must be U.S. citizens. They must also be a returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) OR have substantial professional experience. Interested RPCVs can submit an application to the location or assignment of their choice at any time. In addition, RPCVs can add a resume to the PCR database through the Peace Corps Response website. As requests for Volunteers are received from posts, the PCR database is searched based on the qualifications necessary to perform the assignment. Candidates are interviewed and reference checks are conducted. Only selected candidates are invited to begin the medical and legal clearance process which can take up to 45 days.

Peace Corps Response (PCR) provides opportunities for returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) or experienced professionals to undertake short-term, high-impact assignments in various posts around the world. Its inception as Crisis Corps in 1996 modeled the National Peace Corps Association's successful Emergency Response Network (ERN) of RPCVs willing to respond to crises when needed. First brought about in response to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, Peace Corps Response has fielded over 1000 Volunteers in more than 40 countries. Today, qualified RPCVs can put their professional skills and academic training to work as Peace Corps Response Volunteers; gaining additional international experience while imparting technical expertise critical to partner organizations and the communities they serve.

PCR Volunteers are able to make valued contributions because they come equipped with the language, technical and cross-cultural skills needed to create an immediate impact. PCR works in seven broad program areas: agriculture and environment, community and youth development, business/NGO development and information technology, disaster preparedness and response, education and teacher training, health and HIV/AIDS, and the Global Health Service Partnership.

All Peace Corps Response applicants must be U.S. citizens. They must also be a returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) OR have substantial professional experience. Interested RPCVs can submit an application to the location or assignment of their choice at any time. In addition, RPCVs can add a resume to the PCR database through the Peace Corps Response website. As requests for Volunteers are received from posts, the PCR database is searched based on the qualifications necessary to perform the assignment. Candidates are interviewed and reference checks are conducted. Only selected candidates are invited to begin the medical and legal clearance process which can take up to 45 days.

Positions range from three months to one year in length, and Peace Corps Response Volunteers generally depart for service 8-10 weeks after the position has been opened.

PCR Volunteers serve in the areas of:

  • Agriculture and Environment
  • Community and Youth Development
  • Business/NGO Development and Information Technology
  • Disaster Preparedness and Response
  • Education and Teacher Training
  • Global Health Service Partnership
  • Health and HIV/AIDS
