From the Author
I was very fortunate to be surrounded by incredibly talented and wise people, including some of the best friends and best Volunteers that I know, during my service. They shared their advice and experiences with me and it has made all the difference in my service. I wrote a paragraph or two every month for over four years, from the application to my third year, because I wanted to share that advice with others. The Unofficial Handbook will never be completed, but will always be collecting and sharing thoughts and experiences of Volunteers from around the world. Good luck with your Peace Corps adventure, it's an incredible journey and we're right here with you.
