Peace Corps Volunteers

AIR DATE: March 5, 2010

We talk with one recent college graduate bound for Central America and a middle-aged couple moving to the Ukraine to develop business. We explore what volunteers will be doing, what they need to do to prepare, why they've decided to join the Peace Corps, what they expect to achieve and how they expect their Peace Corps experience will affect the rest of their lives. We will be checking back in six months to catch up on how the reality of the Peace Corps worked out.
