Greetings from your OSU resident Peace Corps Recruiter!
Peace Corps continues to work towards re-establishing its programs worldwide, while responding to ongoing challenges presented by the pandemic. Recruitment continues with an eye towards programs re-opening later in 2021. As always we look to educate OSU students and others about the Peace Corps experience and impacts. With that in mind here are a few February events:
February 9th, 4-5 pm:
Buckeye Bridge Series: Peace Corps | Office of International Affairs | The Ohio State University (osu.edu) Come hear more about how you can "work for the world" from Ohio State's own Peace Corps recruiter and OIA’s Tim Hornsby, who will share his experience working in Community Economic Development and Agriculture in Moldova. This session is open to all students of all majors and ranks interested in learning more about opportunities to make a difference after graduation.
February 10th, 5-6 pm:
Peace Corps Environment Programs: Four CFAES Faculty Share Their Experiences Environment Volunteers lead grassroots efforts to protect the environment and strengthen understanding of environmental issues. They teach environmental awareness in schools and to local organizations, empowering communities to make their own decisions about how to conserve the local environment, through such programs as agroforestry, soil and water conservation, sustainable agriculture, recycling, alternative energy, and other programs. Hear about four faculty members’ experiences in Paraguay, Mauritania, Armenia and Guatemala.
February 24th, 5-6 pm:
+Service: Explore National and International Service Programs Join with representatives of Peace Corps, Americorps, Urban Teachers, City Year and Teach for America to learn how each program works for positive impact nationally and internationally, and compare similarities and differences in their service programs.
