    I investigated the Peace Corp, and had a co-worker end up getting placed in Namibia. She seems to enjoy it so far, but it does seem to be much more of a calling than a job. If folks want to make a difference, but not go so far afield, I'd suggest looking at AmeriCorp programs. They can do a great deal of excellent work for others without completely giving yourself to the program for two years.

    For example, I joined the Public Allies program in my city and got some wonderful experiences of life as a non-profit worker for two years while still maintaining connections to the outside world. It is limited to folks between 18 and 30, but other AmeriCorps sites have different requirements.

    I had someone recommend the peace corps when I was in the "considering" stage of joining the Marine Corps.
