Late today Aaron Williams sent out another alert on what the Peace Corps plans to do. You can read it all on the Peace Corps website: www.peacecorps.gov.
However, for those who want to volunteer for what was called the Crisis Corps, here is what Aaron has to say: “While formal partnerships with Haiti relief organizations have not been established, Peace Corps is currently assessing how we can be helpful in the future. I encourage all Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) interested in possible short-term, high impact assignments in Haiti or other programs around the world to apply to Peace Corps Response. As an RPCV, you have the opportunity to serve again by putting your skills and experience to good use in the places where you are needed the most.
Over 500 Americans have served in Haiti as Peace Corps Volunteers and Haiti will forever be a part of the Peace Corps family. On behalf of the Peace Corps, I extend my deepest sympathies to the people of Haiti, including the local staff and communities that hosted our Volunteers in the past.
Thank you for your spirit of generosity.
Aaron S. Williams
