WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO BECOME A PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER? Growing up I always heard incredible stories from those who had previously served in the Peace Corps, and it was always something I knew I wanted to do. I was attracted to joining the Peace Corps for the opportunity to experience a new culture and learn a new language, while gaining valuable experience in volunteering with disadvantaged youth.
