    I really wanted to as a teenager, but I never got my 4-yr degree and now I have a family, so it didn't work out that way. I never actually looked into the specifics, though.

    I remember reading some horror stories about a few peoples' experiences with it a long time ago, but I can't remember any of the details. It could have been just some sensationalist kind of thing.

    Same here! I wanted to join, but upon looking at the website and information- I think it's required (I'm not sure, maybe I read wrong) that each trip is about 2 years, which also means that volunteers won't be home for a whole 2 years..

    That's what I read from the last time I visited their site.

    I think it would be an awesome experience, but I have a mother who has a handicap that relies on me and I need to stick around to take care of the family.

    If you can go and would like to, I think it would be awesome if you could go. Do more research. It's also required that you get a few vaccination shots that could take at least 6 months or so prior to the trip (Hep B. requires 2 rounds of shots with a few months of gap time between each shot).

    Good Luck!

    I've always dreamed about joining the Peace Corp - I admire the giving spirit so much.
