You need to be a member of Peace Corps / AmeriCorps etc to add comments!

I'm very open to any place but I would like to go to Asia/eastern Europe. With my skill set I'm most likely going to be teaching English.

Good luck, Ryan! Any idea what region of the world you'd like to serve in?

I've got my interview with the recruiter today!

I'm in the process of applying to AmeriCorps programs. Just playing the waiting game now. It'll be good to hear from others who have already done it.

I did a year of Americorps with Habitat for Humanity in '96, the best of both worlds...build houses for the needy and get money for college while doing it. My wife use to work for the Americorps Grant program at Habitat. Please ask me questions!

I hope so, that is why I petitioned to have this created since there wasn't one before. Also since I am considering one or the other after college it will be a good way to hear what they are like.

What? There has to be a ton of manly former Peace Corps volunteers out there! I served in Guatemala from 2003-2005 and it was two of the most important years in my life.

Beards

So I grew a pretty nice beard last winter, did not shave the face (did shave the neck) from September to March. It was fairly gnarly by March.  Looking for some good direction on opinions.  Style a beard yourself or pay the $5.00 and have a barber do it?  If you style it yourself, where did you learn and what do you use.  I am a bald guy, short, athletic build.  Just want to look nice with a bald head and beard, I know it can be done.  Look forward to your thoughts.  I have attached a picture…See More
