  • staff Peace Corps information tables at various events
  • speak with individual applicants preparing for service
  • attend send-off parties to congratulate and support soon-to-be volunteers

Please email the UI Peace Corps representative at to introduce yourself and let him know with what activities you are willing to be involved.
