We are happy to announce that we will have a new blogger on www. peacecorpsworld.org.

 Travis Hellstrom (Mongolia 2008-11) will be blogging at: Unofficial Peace Corps.

Travis was a PCV and PCV Leader in Mongolia and a year before he left for Peace Corps he began writing what would become the Unofficial Peace Corps Volunteer Handbook which he added to here and there for 4 years until, after his 27th month of service in Mongolia, he published it on Amazon.com. The Unofficial Handbook is the only book available which gives 100% of its profits back to Peace Corps projects worldwide. 

Travis is also founder of Peace Corps 101,  a worldwide online course led by Peace Corps Volunteers from around the world, which also donates all proceeds back into Peace Corps through the Peace Corps’ Partnership Program and NPCA’S Global Community Fund!

After completing his Peace Corps service, Travis published a second book called  Enough and created the websit Advance Humanity where he writes weekly articles for everyday humanitarians who are changing themselves and changing the world.

He is also founding CEO of the New Media Foundation which is dedicated to helping leading nonprofits in Mongolia and around the world. He currently lives in the eastern steppe of Mongolia with his wife Tunga.

Travis, Welcome to our site! We look forward to yours words of wisdom from Mongolia!
