Belize PCV Ashli Murdock:
"I made this video at the beginning of our service in Belize. They told us there would be a lot of down time at first, but we really had no idea... but it made way for creativity we had no idea we even possessed! Luckily things have picked up quite a bit since then. I realized soon after I posted in on YouTube that I may have committed social suicide, but I never cease to amaze myself at how far I will go for humor, so at least I hope it it gives you comic relief... and some great ideas for your own Peace Corps down time videos."

About Peace Corps

Since 1961, the Peace Corps has shared with the world America's most precious resource—its people. Peace Corps Volunteers serve in 73 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East. Collaborating with local community members, Volunteers work in areas like education, youth outreach and community development, the environment, and information technology.

Current Volunteers

Serving for two years in the Peace Corps may seem like a long time, but Close of Service may come faster than you expect. Volunteers can make the most of their time in-country through well organized material, collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Returned Volunteers

Your time as a Peace Corps Volunteer doesn't end when your two years of service are over. The time you spent in the Peace Corps will continue to enrich your life, both personally and professionally, for many years. And, in keeping with the Peace Corps' third goal, you'll have new opportunities every day to share what you've learned in the Peace Corps with fellow Americans.

Peace Corps Wiki welcomes all objective points of view about Peace Corps, including the negative aspects of volunteer service. That being said, all articles and contents should be written from a neutral point of view, representing views fairly, proportionately, and with a balanced perceptive of the issue.
