I am wondering if anyone else here did a year of service with the Peace Corps, Americorps, JVC, Lutheran Volunteer Corps, UCCE or any of the other countless volunteer orgs! When and where did you serve? What was your experience like?
5 years with the Peace Corps - two terms 10 years apart. My first stint was 1974-76 in Botswana, Africa. Helped a local government body operate more efficiently, training office staff and working with the budget. Second stint was 1984-86 in Grenada, West Indies. Helped set up a micro-finance agency, giving small loans and basic management training to micro-entrepreneurs all over the island and Carriacou. Lots of adventures with both experiences.
