Peace Corps Response*
Peace Corps Response – originally named Crisis Corps – is a Peace Corps program that mobilizes perons for challenging short term assignments (generally three to six months in length) in various program areas around the world.
Peace Corps Response was historically only available to eligible returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Now it has been expanded to include Americans with at least 10 years of work experience and medical professionals.
Peace Corps Response offers seasoned professionals the opportunity to undertake short-term, high-impact assignments in various programs around the world. Positions average six months in length and are designed to address development needs as identified by the host country.
Training for Peace Corps Response Volunteers can be as short as a few days or as long as 14 days. Training covers topics such as medical care, safety and security, and project-specific information. Peace Corps Response Volunteers may also participate in cultural orientation sessions and limited language training, in addition to a short homestay in some countries.
