Next week the University of Denver (DU) Peace Corps Community, with leadership from the Josef Korbel School, will host a panel of returned volunteers in celebration of Peace Corps Week. Celebrating Peace Corps’ 50th anniversary last year, the University of Denver boasts the largest community of Paul D. Coverdell Fellows and Masters International students.
The panel, How the Peace Corps Changed Your Life, will feature Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) from regions around the world, DU alumni, a Master’s International students and will be moderated by Ambassador Chris Hill, Dean of the Josef Korbel School and RPCV from Cameroon. Stories from their experiences and their journey to Denver will exemplify the role of Peace Corps in their lives.
“We're excited to share our stories, the highs and lows, and to reach out to potential future volunteers who may be considering joining the Peace Corps,” said Sophie Dila, President of the Josef Korbel School’s Peace Corps Community.
The event is part of Peace Corps Week, a time to celebrate volunteers past and future and remind legislators of the importance of Peace Corps programming. A recruiter will also be present to answer questions about the application for interested and prospective volunteers.
The panel will be held Wednesday April 4th at 5pm in the Cyber Café at Ben Cherrington Hall.
