The Peace Corps, a U.S. federal agency, brings together skilled, committed Volunteers with welcoming host communities for 27-month service opportunities in more than 60 countries. Volunteers live and work side by side with community members on locally prioritized projects, building relationships, exchanging cultures and knowledge, and helping transform lives for generations. The Peace Corps provides each Volunteer with transportation, housing, and a living stipend, paid vacation days, medical and dental care, funds to help transition back home, student loan benefits, and career and graduate school benefits. Volunteers work in one of six sectors including Education, Youth in Development, and Health. The Peace Corps also offers volunteers the opportunity to complete a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Certificate Program. The certificate is validated by the Center for Applied Linguistics in Washington, D.C. and recognized both nationally and internationally. Learn more about Peace Corps service:

Nebraska undergraduates can also earn a certificate from the Peace Corps through the Peace Corps Prep program. Integrating UNL coursework, hands-on experience, and professional development, the PC Prep program prepares undergraduates for international development fieldwork and potential Peace Corps service. Special features of the PC Prep program at UNL include: Study abroad scholarships up to $5,000, an Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) assessment upon acceptance and completion, semester kick-off events, announcements about campus/community events, and opportunities to engage with Returned Peace Corps Volunteers in the community through events, mentorship, and group volunteer experiences.
