I would like to say GOOD JOB to Gene Wheeler and all the volunteers who spend their lives helping others in the Peace Corp.
250 New Peace Corps Volunteers Sworn Into Service
WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec. 30, 2014 – During the last two months of 2014, 250 new two-year Peace Corps volunteers were sworn into service and have begun their work in communities across Armenia, Cameroon, Lesotho, Macedonia, Mozambique and Rwanda.
The new volunteers completed three months of intensive cultural, language and technical training in their countries of service before swearing in. Throughout the remainder of their Peace Corps service, they will live and work alongside local community members fostering relationships and helping to address the communities’ most pressing needs.
Across 64 partner countries, Peace Corps volunteers of all ages and backgrounds work at the grassroots level toward sustainable change in six program areas: education, health, community economic development, environment, youth in development, and agriculture. Volunteers integrate into their host community – working collaboratively with their local counterparts – to promote the country’s development goals and inspire cross-cultural understanding.
