I was moving the June '09 invitations from the current Timeline to the Timeline archive, and I think the archived invitations "By Region and Month" section needs some work. Organizing the information by region is helpful, but since many programs have multiple departures per year, the result is somewhat sloppy - users cannot easily determine departure months just by looking at the list, and it only gets messier when more recent invitations are moved from the main Timeline page onto the archived invitations page.

So... There are two delegates of PCVs leaving for Ethiopia two days apart from each other? Somehow that seems infeasible to me. (See Staging: October 2009)

My husband and I are currently in the very early stages of application (haven't yet received a call from the recruiter). I searched this site and did not find any specific pages on what the application process is like for a married couple. I am hoping something like this might be added, as all my research might be for naught if our process is completely different from that of single applicants. Thanks!

I was doing some research online when I stumbled across your site. I really like what you have done so it gave me some ideas that I wanted to share with you.

About what I do, I work for Veneto Panama, one of the most luxurious hotel and casino resorts in Panama. Since the material on your site complements what we do, I’d like to propose a partnership that is mutually beneficial for the both of us.

I have a team of writers available that can write articles, web pages, blogs, etc… We’re also open to freelance opportunities should you be interested. Let me know if you’re interested or have any questions.

Do I still have a chance in the Peace Corps? Or is additional volunteer work a waste of time?

I received my response to my Peace Corps application today," We are interested in your application; however, there are currently no available programs that fit the skills you bring to Peace Corps"

I have already started looking into volunteer tutoring for English as a Second Language with 3 organizations. I actually go to an orientation tomorrow. I will be beginning volunteer work with the Boys & Girls Club next month. I also found free Spanish classes to take on Craigslist.

My questions is... What are the odds that I can get in with all this additional volunteer work? Has someone done this before? Were you able to proceed with the application process after about three months of all the extra volunteer work? Are there just too many applicants, and they don't need me at all even with the volunteer work?

I'm kind of devastated that I didn't even get an interview, but I don't want to give up. I really really want this, but I also don't want to get my hopes up if this isn't going to work. I realize volunteer work will never be a waste of time. I absolutely love doing it and that's why I want to be a part of this organization, but I just want to know if anyone else has been through this. I don't know what on my application would have caused me not to even get an interview. I'm healthy, have a lot of volunteer experience, cross cultural experience, and I made good grades.

Any advice? Recruiters/Peace Corps Volunteers are you out there?
