New Peace Corps Prep Certificate Program Launch
Students interested in learning about the new Peace Corps Prep certificate program can attend the program launch event from 1-3 p.m., Tuesday, September 20, in the Prairie Room of the Bone Student Center at Illinois State University.
The program prepares students for international development work abroad or in the United States. Returned Peace Corps volunteers will be on hand at the event to answer questions. Sheila Crowley of the Washington, D.C. Peace Corps office will speak, as will President Larry Dietz of Illinois State.
“This program is for any student who is ready for the “next step” in leadership and engaging in the world,” said Beverly Beyer, associate director of the Stevenson Center, where the Peace Corps Prep program will be housed at Illinois State. “The courses and experiences all prepare students for global endeavors.”
The program, which the Peace Corps recently approved for both Illinois State and Illinois Wesleyan universities, draws on classes already available in the university curriculum. The Peace Corps Prep program is open to all majors.
