Pre-Service + Pre-Service Training
Deciding to join Peace Corps is no small undertaking. There’s an application. [Really, it’s not that bad. They revamped the application process in 2014 cutting down the time from when you apply to when you leave.]You are required to have references. There’s an interview. Then a federal background check. And medical and dental exams [My god with the medical exams]. Then there’s waiting. And more waiting. And even more waiting. Oh and let’s not forget about the packing. All this before you even join. Am I forgetting anything?
