Mentoring Program for RPCVs and Applicants
The SEMiRPCV Mentoring Program provides newly returned PCVs with RPCV
mentors who are available to assist in a variety of areas. It also offers
RPCV mentoring for Peace Corps applicants as they go through the process
between application and departure for Peace Corps service. In addition,
those who are considering applying to the Peace Corps are welcome to
RPCVs Within One Year of Close of Service: If you have completed your Peace
Corps service within the past 12 months, you may apply to be paired with an
RPCV mentor. Mentors offer many services, including listening to stories
and sharing experiences; helping ease the transition back to the U.S.;
providing information about the local community; brainstorming career and
graduate school possibilities; providing contacts with people in various
professions; editing resumes and applications; offering introductions to
other local RPCVs; involving mentees in SEMiRPCV and its activities, and
much more, depending on the needs and wishes of mentees. Any RPCV who has
completed service within one year is eligible to be a mentee. Go to
www.rpcvmentoring.org and fill out a mentee application. Your application
will be forwarded to SEMiRPCV.
Applicants and Those Who Are Considering Applying: RPCV mentors are paired
with applicants and other interested individuals to assist as they go
through the application process or consider applying. Applicants and those
considering applying to the Peace Corps have a variety of concerns, and
mentors meet with them, stay in contact by phone or email, help them
understand the process, and answer questions about life and work in host
countries. Contact the program through the box below.
