Heifer International is a good fit for Peace Corps veterans who have strong multi-cultural sensitivity and experience from working in developing countries. In some cases, volunteers had directly encountered Heifer at work in the counties where they served.
Heifer International is seeking Global Education Volunteers for positions at its farms in Perryville, Arkansas and Rutland, Maine. These positions include housing and a $400 per month stipend for a period of 9 mos to 1 year. Over the years, many Peace Corps veterans have taken positions at one of Heifer's farm-based learning centers after completing their volunteer service. Working with Heifer International is a win-win, providing a hands-on laboratory for transferring valuable community development experience and feeding a passion for service, while helping Heifer fulfill its educational mission.
