Peace Corps Prep

See the world. Change the world. If you are passionate about travel and compassionate toward others, the Peace Corps Prep program has a place for you.

The Peace Corps Prep program is a partnership between Monmouth and the Peace Corps. The program is open to students from all years and all majors. Participants in the program will earn a certificate from the Peace Corps and develop relevant skills for Peace Corps service and careers in international service and community development.

Participants are not required to apply to the Peace Corps, nor is acceptance into Peace Corps guaranteed. However, successful completion of the Monmouth  Peace Corps Prep program will distinguish participants during the competitive application process for service, employment, or graduate studies.
