Peace Corp Opportunities

Peace Corps recruiter, Scot Roskelley, invites forestry majors to come to a Peace Corps information session to learn more about how the Peace Corps works, the benefits of service (including money for grad school and enhanced hiring status for federal government jobs) and the timing for application (applicants typically apply about a year before they’re ready to depart).   

There are currently 38 openings in the Peace Corps for forestry volunteers. These openings are in Zambia and have a July 1 application deadline and depart Jan. 13, 2020. The title of the opening is “Ag. & Forestry Extension Agent.”  More Peace Corps openings will be posted on May 1 and on Aug. 1 this year.

Peace Corp Send Off Party- April 25, Strand 263, 6:00 pm - OSU students who are going into the Peace Corps will be there as will as faculty, staff, and community members who have already served in the Peace Corps. The alumni will talk about their Peace Corps experiences. The OSU students accepted into the Peace Corps will talk about why they decided to join and what they’re going to do. This is a perfect event to attend to talk to others who have served in the Peace Corps and get a sense of whether it’s something they might want to do.

Peace Corp Information Session - May 23, Strand 263, 6:00 pm - Stop by this general information session to find out more about Peace Corp opportunities and the benefits of Peace Corp service. You can email Roskelley for more information or even to set up an appointment with him to find out more about Peace Corps service (sroskelley@peacecorps.gov). Peace Corp Events
