Urban Planning With The Peace Corps

Peace Corps sign from Ghana

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.
