This is kind of old news, but for those urban planners who thought about joining the Peace Corps‘ Municipal Development program I would say you (like me) waited too long.
The program, including many urban planning-specific positions, was eliminated and consolidated into the Community Development program. I was actually not aware of the Municipal Development program when I researched about volunteer positions, probably because the decision was actually made a few years ago.
Ultimately, I decided not to apply because I didn’t think I would be able to find a position that fit my professional development goals.
