How can you prepare yourself to be the best Peace Corps Volunteer you can be?

There is no one right answer to this question, but the Peace Corps has identified four core competencies that are critical to the intercultural fieldwork Peace Corps Volunteers do:

  1. Sector-specific skills
  2. Foreign language proficiency
  3. Intercultural competence
  4. Professional savvy and leadership

The UWL Peace Corps Prep program, which officially launches in September 2018, creates a framework to help you develop four competencies by integrating the coursework you may already be doing with hands-on experience and professional development.

Upon completion of the program, you will receive a certificate from the Peace Corps — and a competitive edge when applying for Peace Corps service!
