Peace Corps’ Annual Capitol Hill Recruiting Event
for Congressional Staff and Interns

Come Learn about the Peace Corps from Congressional Alumni and
Peace Corps Director Jody Olsen


Dear Colleague:

Please encourage your staff and interns to join us on Tuesday, July 17 from 1:00p.m. to 2:00p.m. in 2167 Rayburn HOB for the Peace Corps’ annual Capitol Hill recruiting event.

As co-chairs of the Congressional Peace Corps Caucus, we can attest to the vital role that Peace Corps plays in implementing Congress’ international development priorities and promoting national service.  The Peace Corps gives Volunteers the chance to learn
a new language, experience a new culture, and develop career and leadership skills.  The Peace Corps experience can also enhance long-term career prospects, whether a Volunteer wants to work in the public, private, or nonprofit sector.  The Peace Corps can even open doors to graduate school, internships, and job placements.

Since 1961, Peace Corps Volunteers have worked around the world at the grassroots level in a variety of sectors, including: education, business development, agriculture, health and HIV/AIDS, information technology, youth, and the environment.  Peace Corps
Volunteers help train men and women and build cross-cultural relationships.  To date, over 230,000 Volunteers have served in 141 countries. 

We encourage your staff and interns to join us to learn about becoming a Peace Corps Volunteer and the many wonderful benefits of service.  Director Jody Olsen and representatives from the Washington, D.C., area recruiting office will be present to answer any questions about the application process. 

To RSVP, or if you have any questions about the event, please contact Peace Corps’ Office of Congressional Relations at congressional@peacecorps.gov.
