Wondering if anyone here has ever joined the Peace Corps or has had family members involved? My son will be graduating from college after this falls semester, so around Christmas time. He is unsure of what he wants to do for a living. A college instructor suggested the Peace Corps, and my son talked with this instructor's son who did it for 2 years in Paraguay. My son is considering Paraguay or El Salvador. I know nothing about the Peace Corps, or either of these countries. He is always looking to help others, but to me it just seems scary to have my son gone for 2 years in a strange country where he will not know anyone. He is very naïve and gullible to be honest. He is unsure if he wants to do this but is leaning toward it. Thanks in advance for any advice or experiences that anyone can share.
