Peace Corps Global Presenters Training
While there are big changes at Peace Corps, some things haven’t changed in 54 years. RPCVs have a wealth of personal experiences and cultural knowledge to share. But planning Peace Corps talks can be challenging–often RPCVs don’t know quite where to start. Attend this training to learn how to plan, execute, and enjoy your own Peace Corps activities. Talking about your Peace Corps experience to an interested audience can be extremely satisfying, keep you close to your experience, and allow for amazing learning and inspiration. Now, more than ever, Peace Corps is engaging with the RPCV community! Reconnect with the Peace Corps and challenge misperceptions about Iran.
