If I was given the opportunity to receive compensation for doing what I enjoy the most; I would combine my passion to help others with my desire to travel abroad. As a volunteer in the Peace Corps, I would be assigned to assist a community in a foreign country develop and flourish using resources available. Volunteers play a very important role in an individual’s and a community’s development. When government officials and professionals cannot meet the needs of people, volunteers step in to offer their time, talents and money. Although the Peace Corps provides its volunteers with the essentials to live decently within a community, the allowance received is not close to the comfort offered in the US. To make an impact, you have to answer the question, “ What does the world need?” The world needs people to carry acts out of concern for others without payment in return. Serving in the Peace would make a difference in the world because I would help citizens in a developing nation increase their standard of living. Because preference is giving to candidates who are college graduates, I will continue to work towards my degree while being an active volunteer in my community. By serving in the Peace Corps, I will empower the next generation of change makers using the knowledge and skills I have gained and continue to learn. This will allow me to work with development programs or educate schoolchildren, thus promoting engagement and active citizenship.
