Make Service Your Career

Still pondering what you are going to do after graduation? Have you ever had an interest in serving the public and people of our country? 

If so, then you will not want to miss the upcoming interactive informational session with Teach for America (@JMUDukesTFA) and the Peace Corps (@PeaceCorps). The session will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 from 5:30 – 6:30 PM in Festival Conference Room 4.

The event is co-sponsored by JMU MORTAR Board and Phi Sigma Pi, and will include a panel of experts who work or have worked with TFA or the Peace Corps. Students will be allotted time and are encouraged to ask questions, network and much more!

Both Teach for America and the Peace Corps have a long history of recruiting JMU Dukes to work for them post-graduation. Molly Douglas, a Regional Recruiter for the Corps states, “35 JMU graduates are currently serving around the world as Peace Corps volunteers.  Last year, there were 42 and in 2011, there were 39.  Since the Peace Corps was established in 1961, 441 total JMU graduates have served as Peace Corps volunteers.”
