The New and Improved Peace Corps Journals Site
A while back we highlighted for you some of the links on our sidebar which included the Worldwide Peace Corps Journals site – an aggregated collection of Peace Corps volunteer blogs.
After stopping by the site again, I noticed that they have completely updated it so that it includes not only PCV blogs, but photos and videos from volunteers as well as the site’s most popular stories. It’s pretty amazing and well worth taking a look at – I envy the kind of technology volunteers have these days in terms of documenting their work. It’s pretty impressive!
I have included a four-part video series which I found on the Worldwide Peace Corps Journals site. This series comes from Peace Corps Namibia and is about the country’s 2008 Camp GLOW which focuses on educating youth about HIV/AIDS prevention, as well as leadership development and team building. It’s a four part series which begins with an introduction and history of the camp and concludes with a self-assessment from the camp’s chair. It’s impressive and inspiring to watch and can be found, along with other Peace Corps videos, in the video section of the The Worldwide Peace Corps Journals site:
