Peace Corps is expanding the Virtual Service Pilot Project to include 25 countries. The Virtual Service Pilot team reports it sent emails, with information specific to the host country, to RPCVS who served in each of these countries. From the Virtual Service Pilot Project team:
“As this is a pilot initiative, information is limited. We do have FAQs that provide some information. RPCVs from participating countries, of which there are 25, who have current/updated information in the Peace Corps database were sent the opportunities directly to their email addresses. If you would like to encourage RPCVs to engage in virtual service please ask them to check their emails for virtual service opportunities. If RPCVs are unsure if their information is current in the Peace Corps databased, please encourage them to update their contact information here.”
The team also reported:
“There are only a limited number of positions for virtual service available, and not all who express interest will have the opportunity to participate in the VSP. We will review at least the first 20 expressions of interest that are received for each virtual engagement. If you would like to be considered for any of these virtual opportunities, please submit your expression of interest as soon as possible and no later than Wednesday, May 26th. Expressions of interest will be reviewed on a rolling basis.”
