What an incredibly inspiring

Was this helpful?

What an incredibly inspiring article! The relationship between the purpose and mission of the Peace Corps and the mission of schools is a great articulation of why teachers take on their roles in the first place. I would piggyback, as a former AmeriCorps*VISTA volunteer often called the "domestic Peace Corps" that there are opportunities in this country to give a year of service and many of those opportunities are in schools. I think if more young adults knew about the opportunity to give a year of service after graduation, the focus might shift from "how can I get a job?" to "how can I meaningfully contribute to a community?". Thanks for this reminder of Peace Corps' inspirational story and how the lessons translate to the world of education.
