Project Launch: 7/15/17

Project leader, Tyler, served in Burkina Faso. Following his return to the U.S., Tyler began to see that every Returned Peace Corps Volunteer he spoke with had a unique story to tell. He has launched a podcast to share their stories. Check it out here!

This is a podcast for prospective volunteers, current volunteers, returned volunteers, and anyone interested in the experience of integrating into a new country. Tyler hopes that this podcast will provide prospective volunteers with a better understanding of Peace Corps, current volunteers with the pleasure of hearing other volunteers’ experiences (across the globe and decades), and returned volunteers with a connection to the Peace Corps community.

Importantly, the My Peace Corps Story podcast will provide an opportunity for friends, family, and anyone with access to the internet to learn more about Peace Corps: the volunteers, projects, countries, and cultures. What better way to learn about Peace Corps and the wider world than through the words of those who lived and experienced it?

Project Update: 1/15/18

Tyler's podcast is booming! In just the first month, the podcast was downloaded 2,000 times! He's scheduling interviews with Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and giving them a platform to share stories from their service.
