Our U-M Peace Corps office is staffed by one or more Peace Corps recruiters who are returned Peace Corps Volunteers and U-M graduate students. Our Peace Corps recruiters provide information about the Peace Corps, advise those who may consider joining, and accept applications from prospective volunteers. The Peace Corps recruiters maintain contacts with Ann Arbor area returned Peace Corps Volunteers and offer an informal setting for them to gather and meet with future volunteers.
