The Peace Corps
Peace Corps recruiter available for class and club talks.
The MU Career Center welcomes Trevor Harris back as the Peace Corps' campus strategic recruiter here at the University of Missouri. Trevor is now available for Peace Corps-focused class and club talks on campus and can tailor talks to course content.

Founded in 1961, the U.S. Peace Corps lets American citizens share their skills abroad in developing countries. For a period of two years, volunteers serve in Africa, Europe, South America or Asia in sectors like education, health, agriculture/environment and youth development. Most available positions require a college degree. Learn more about the Peace Corps online as well as how the agency is responding to the pandemic, which resulted in 8,000 volunteers globally being evacuated last March.
You can also learn more about the Peace Corps at an upcoming:
