    I worked at Peace Corps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Independence in most situations to start programs that address community needs. Ability to live and integrate abroad.

    Cons

    The relationships with site organizations seem to take precedence over volunteer compatibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Therapeutic counseling is needed for volunteers as many of the more difficult challenges are psychological. Administrators should be trained more often.

    I worked at Peace Corps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent volunteer support in every aspect including health, mental, and administrative. I received the best medical care of my life.

    Cons

    Pay as a volunteer is abysmal and I did not receive a pay raise my entire 2 years of service, despite filling out several living allowance surveys and obvious signs of incredible cost of living increases in the country. Stipend was not enough to live on and I had to support myself with outside funding.
