Our Peace Corps Stories and Experiences

It’s the start of a new year, and I’ve been doing some virtual cleaning/organizing. While some of you have been with us for a while, others may be trying to get a glimpse of our Peace Corps service as a whole. As we already have so many stories and tidbits on here, it can be a bit tricky to go digging in our archives. But have no fear! A new year and a few new pages are here!

The following pages (located under the “Peace Corps” menu drop-down above) chunk our years in Nicaragua into smaller time-frames and highlight about 5 posts that embody that particular part of our service. Peruse at your leisure:

Preparation and Departure
March – August 2014
Deciding to leave your jobs, life, family, and friends is a big decision and actually takes a lot of work.

Pre-Service Training
August – November 2014
Peace Corps gave us 3 months of intensive, in-country language, technical, and cultural training before we were allowed to officially swear in as Peace Corps Volunteers.

Integration (the first 3 months at site)
November 2014 – February 2015
While integration work is something that lasts during all of service, the first couple months at site have their own set of challenges and rewards.
