Looking to make a difference in the world? There are many opportunities for full-time volunteers, both at home and abroad. Prior to embarking upon a serious career journey, many college graduates are looking for a chance to serve others, enhance personal growth and explore different cultures and geographic locations.
On the flip side of the career coin, many older volunteers are taking the opportunity to give back and many of these opportunities aren't limited to younger applicants. The oldest Peace Corps volunteer currently serving is 81 and Arthur Goodfriend of Honolulu, Hawaii, at 87, was the oldest volunteer in Peace Corps' history.
