My partner and I would like to spend some time working/volunteering abroad. I have a BA from a liberal arts college, and my partner will have a Master’s in Urban Planning. I’m particularly interested in public health, but we’re both pretty open-minded about the kind of work we could do.
We have talked about joining the Peace Corps and have friends who have had great Peace Corps experiences. But we’re wondering about alternative programs (specifically, programs that are not government-affiliated). Most programs we’ve found cost a lot of money. Does anyone have experience with or know of Peace Corps-like organizations? -Lina
