Following is a list of websites for additional information about the Peace Corps and Ethiopia, or to connect you to returned Volunteers and other invitees. Pease keep in mind that although we have tried to make sure all these links are active and current, we cannot guarantee it.

The Peace Corps Eastern Caribbean regional headquarters is located in Saint Lucia and has volunteers in Saint Lucia working in education.<ref> [http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/2344.htm U.S. Relations With Saint Lucia], ''United States Department of State (February 19, 2014)</ref>
  
A note of caution: As you surf these sites, be aware that you will find bulletin boards and chat rooms in which people are free to give opinions and advice based on their own experiences. The opinions expressed are not those of the Peace Corps or the U.S. Government. You may find opinions of people who were unhappy with their choice to serve in the Peace Corps. As you read these comments, we hope you will keep in mind that the Peace Corps is not for everyone, and no two people experience their service in the same way.
