Join us to learn what Peace Corps life is like from Returned Volunteers who have served all over the world on Oct 23rd at 6pm in the UMC Glenn Miller Ballroom!
Our keynote speaker this year will be Justice Greg Hobbs of the Colorado Supreme Court. Justice Hobbs was part of the first decade of volunteers to join the Peace Corps, serving as an Educational Television Volunteer in Columbia from 1967 to 1968. Nearly 50 years later his service has still left an impact on him.
But wait – there’s more!
The Logo Ligi Dance Troupe will kick off our event with a high energy Ghanaian music and dance performance. They like to get the crowd moving so bring your dancing shoes! http://www.logoligi.com/
PEACE CORPS OPEN HOUSE!
After the presentations stick around to chat with over 20 Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and find out what it’s like to live in: South & Central America, Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia, and The Pacific Islands.
Interested in hearing about their work in the Peace Corps? Our Returned Volunteers have served in a variety of roles including: Education, Youth in Development, Health, Community Economic Development, Agriculture, Environment, HIV/AIDS, and Food Security.
Not sure if you qualify for the Corps? We’ll be inviting a variety of student and community organizations to help you gain volunteer experience so your Peace Corps application will stand out from the rest!
