UMass and Suffolk Career Fairs

On Wednesday, March 4, the University of Massachusetts Boston and Suffolk University are holding their career fairs. UMass Boston is from 1-4, and Suffolk is from 4-6. I am in need of one or two RPCVs to cover one of the two fairs, and Kat Deutsch (PC recruiter) will cover the other.


The University of Massachusetts Boston is located in Dorchester, off of the JFK/UMass stop on the Red Line. There is also parking available on campus. Suffolk is located right downtown on Tremont Street, close to the Park Street stop on the Red Line. There is no parking available.

If anyone is interested and able in helping with either fair, please email Kat at

Host a PCV and doctor from the National Malaria Control Program of Senegall
Hey BARPCV!  My name is Janelle Kibler and I am a current Health Extension PCV in Senegal. This year I'm teaming up with a doctor from Senegal's National Malaria program (PNLP) to complete the Global Health Delivery Intensive at Harvard during the month of July. This will be completed as part of my 3rd year extension to coordinate a national malaria program, called Integrated PECADOM Plus. Since Peace Corps and other sponsors will be funding this opportunity we are trying to save as much money as possible. The room and board for Harvard is quite expensive for this program and so I wanted to reach out to local RPCVs to see if anyone is able to provide room and board for a month while we are completing this program. Please spread the word and have anyone interested contact me as soon as possible! Thank you!

The Boston Peace Corps Recruiters are hosting an Around the World Fair at Boston University during Peace Corps Week, on Monday, March 2nd from 12:30 to 3:30pm. RPCVs are needed to represent each region of the world in which Peace Corps serves, through information and interactive tables representing the regions.

· About Peace Corps Week: Each year, Peace Corps Week commemorates the anniversary of Kennedy’s establishment of the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961. Peace Corps Week, held this year from March 1-7, 2015, is a global celebration of how Peace Corps makes a difference at home and abroad.


The Peace Corps community is invited to bring the world home for Peace Corps Week 2015 with “Around the World with Peace Corps” festivals. Peace Corps festivals are an exciting opportunity to connect with the American public and offer a front row seat to some of the world's most remote places as well as firsthand perspectives not otherwise easily accessible.

● Ideas for interactive activities at tables: Teach students how to wrap a sarong, teach a few words of the language, have students find the country on the map, play a game, use a cooking device etc.


This event should be a really fun time, but we need your help to make it successful! Please email Amber Patterson-Strom at if you are available to help out with the Around the World Fair.

Volunteer opportunity at Lasell College
One RPCV is needed to attend the Lasell College Study Abroad Fair. The fair will be held on Tuesday, February 3rd from 1:30-3:15pm at Lasell’s campus in Newton, MA. Free lunch provided to attendees! If you can attend, please contact Amber Patterson-Strom directly at
