Thank you for your interest in the Peace Corps Campus Ambassador program!

Here are a few key points to understand before submitting this application:

-- This is a two-semester experience, spanning from the Fall through the Spring semesters (or the quarters/blocks therein).

-- Serving as a Campus Ambassador will not guarantee that you will be accepted as a Peace Corps Volunteer if you choose to apply.

-- Being affiliated with the Peace Corps in any way may adversely impact your ability to pursue an internship or career with an U.S. intelligence agency (e.g., FBI, CIA, etc.). This policy is founded on the premise that it is crucial to the Peace Corps in carrying out its mission that there is a complete and total separation of Peace Corps operations from the intelligence activities of the United States government, both in reality and appearance.

-- This is a peer-to-peer outreach position, so -- among other activities -- you will need to give short presentations about the Peace Corps to various student groups on campus and post about Peace Corps on your personal social media.
