The University of Florida ranks among the highest in Peace Corps recruits and boasts a tremendous number of return volunteers (over 200 in Gainesville alone). The Peace Corps has been one of the most successful programs in the U.S. for over 50 years. Florida Gators like yourselves are all over the world are serving in the Peace Corps.
While most students enter the Peace Corps after completing their Bachelor's degree, there are other opportunities to continue learning and serving. There is a high demand for recruits with a background in agriculture and natural resources. Learn more at peacecorps.gov or visit the UF International Center's website.
