Peace Corps Prep Program


Download the Application & Student Guide

The Peace Corps Prep program prepares students like you for service around the world. Our program welcomes IWU students from all years and all majors. Being part of the Peace Corps Prep program shows your commitment to global citizenship.

The program focuses on the four core competencies that are critical to the intercultural fieldwork completed by Peace Corps Volunteers:

Work Sector Training     Foreign Language     Intercultural Competence     Professional & Leadership Development

Earning your Peace Corps Prep certificate does not guarantee your acceptance into the Peace Corps, and likewise does not require that you apply to, or serve in, the Peace Corps following completion of the certificate.

No matter where you go--public or private sector, domestic or international service, employment or more education--your Peace Corps Prep certificate shows that you have the training to be a community leader.
