Peace Corp Volunteers (PCVs) work on a variety of assignments within their given communities, which can be in either rural and urban areas. PCVs teach everything from English to hygiene to science to both students and future teachers. PCVs also provide agricultural training and coordinate improvement projects such as building schools and libraries. PCVs regularly participate in community projects outside of their specific work assignments.
