- New! Seeking Volunteer for UAA Website Management Training – With David Cohen’s long and selfless stint at the helm of the UAA Website tapering down, Tish Butler has volunteered to try to fill his very large shoes. However, it makes sense that content and management of the website be shared, rather than leaning on only one valiant volunteer. Please consider offering your computer know-how to David and Tish, for training and future involvement in this important endeavor. WordPress is not hard to learn! Email David (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Tish (email@example.com) if you have questions or would like to join in.

- Peace Corp Response Program: The Peace Corps Response Program complements the traditional 2-year Peace Corps tour by providing volunteers to do short term (3-12 months), high impact projects to address critical needs in host countries.

Although many USAID alumni are returned Peace Corps Volunteers, even those who are not possess exactly the kind of skills needed as a Peace Corps Response Volunteer. These positions come with the same benefits as the 2-year program, including travel to and from the country of service, full medical benefits, and a living stipend. To learn more about the program and view open positions, visit: peacecorps.gov/response. New positions are posted on this website as they are requested by the host country, so please check back regularly.
