Our Story

Our Story: After meeting in graduate school at UGA, we were married in 2011 in Marietta, Georgia. A year later, we joined the Peace Corps as environmental conservation volunteers and embarked on our adventure in Paraguay!

Info Session

Tonight we went to a Peace Corps Information Session at the Atlanta Library. We were able to talk to a recruiter who served in Malawi.

Here are some things we found out:
  • 90% of volunteers carry cell phones.
  • Volunteers typically work Monday-Friday and have the weekends off.
  • Currently, applicants are nominated to go to a specific region 8-10 months into the application process. This process will change in January 2012, but this change will not effect our applications.
  • Your placement officer (not recruiter) determines where you will be placed.
  • It is very rare for married couples to have a choice of where they will serve.
