Peace Corps at CSULB

The Peace Corps is a mid-sized federal agency with goals to help people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women as well as promoting a better understanding between American and host cultures. Peace Corps provides a competitive opportunity for Americans to completely immerse themselves in another culture, develop skills, challenge themselves, build relationships, and work to make an impact. Over 60 host countries request specific needs and Peace Corps fulfills that with over 7,000 trained volunteers serving within sectors such as education, health, environment, agriculture, youth development, and community economic development. For more information please attend the upcoming virtual panel event, information session, or application workshop via Zoom and visit the Peace Corps website.

CSULB has become one of the leading producers of Peace Corps Volunteers with 841+ alumni who've completed their Peace Corps service.

As a result of CSULB winning a competitive grant funded by the U.S. State Department, the university hosts an official on-campus Peace Corps Recruiter.
