As a Peace Corps Trainee, your life is a very scheduled one. The first ten days, June 6-16, we stay in an Apia “hotel” and then move to the rural village of Manunu with occasional side trips to Apia.

Location Calendar

August 22 is when those who have passed all the competencies are sworn in as full-fledged Peace Corps Volunteers and then go to their own villages to begin their projects.
