Put your Peace Corps experience to work.

Peace Corps Response provides opportunities for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) to undertake challenging, short-term assignments in various program areas around the world. Its inception as Crisis Corps in 1996 modeled the National Peace Corps Association's successful Emergency Response Network (ERN) of RPCVs willing to respond to crises when needed. First brought about in response to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, Peace Corps Response has fielded over 1000 Volunteers in more than 40 countries. Qualified RPCVs can put their professional skills and academic training to work as Peace Corps Response (PCR) Volunteers; gaining additional international experience while imparting technical expertise critical to partner organizations and the communities they serve.

PCR Volunteers are able to make valued contributions because they come equipped with the language, technical and cross-cultural skills needed to create an immediate impact. PCR works in five broad program areas: humanitarian assistance, natural disaster relief and reconstruction, HIV/AIDS, disaster preparedness and mitigation, and post-conflict relief and reconstruction. Peace Corps Response is constantly exploring new ideas for assignments and program areas in order to meet changing needs worldwide.

In order be eligible, applicants must have completed at least 12 months of Peace Corps Service (not including training). Applicants can apply to the program at any time and be included in the PCR database or may apply for specific positions which can be accessed through the Peace Corps Website and the Hotline Newsletter. As requests for volunteers are received, the PCR database is searched based on the qualifications necessary to perform the assignment. Candidates are interviewed and reference checks are conducted. Only selected candidates are invited to begin the medical and legal clearance process.

Peace Corps Response makes every effort to field volunteers between 8-10 weeks after the position has been opened. Medical clearances can take up to 45 days.
