This page attempts to break down medical restrictions—that is, if you have a certain restriction, what countries will accept that restriction? This is in no way complete and should be considered an on-going project. Also, please keep in mind that sometimes, even though a medical condition is generally accepted in a country—that there can be personal complications that could affect one person and not another.

Revision as of 22:08, 24 November 2008


Older Americans contribute tremendously to Peace Corps programs all over the globe. No single group has more to offer in terms of experience, maturity, and demonstrated ability.

Many older Volunteers find their age to be an asset while serving overseas. You will have the opportunity to share a lifetime of work and wisdom with people of developing nations who respect and appreciate age. And because there's no upper age limit to serve, it's never too late—Volunteers who are well into their eighties have served and continue to serve.
