From Westfield to the Peace Corps: A Roadmap to Success

The Peace Corps Prep program aims to advance the goals of the Peace Corps to promote peace and friendship in three ways: 

  • To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women;
  • To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the people served; and
  • To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.

The Peace Corps Prep program at Westfield State University will create a community of learners and practitioners who are interested in global awareness, international service, and a commitment to supporting peaceful work wherever it is needed.

Although completion of the P.C. Prep program does not guarantee acceptance as a Peace Corps volunteer, the specialized curriculum and experience will greatly increase your chances as an applicant.
