Azerbaijan and the Peace Corps
Jarrett Dunn, '09
In September 2010 I began a 27 month long journey to Azerbaijan as a Peace Corps volunteer working in Youth Development. As some in the audience may not know anything about Azerbaijan or the Peace Corps, we will first discuss Azerbaijan's geographic location, brief history, holidays, national meals, the people and culture. Secondly, we will discuss Peace Corps' goals and mission, my work as a Youth Development volunteer, and how to apply. This talk will consist of many pictures with the aim of giving the audience a visual understanding of Azerbaijan. The goals of this talk is to give the audience a better understanding of Azerbaijan, to learn more about Peace Corps and the life of a Peace Corps volunteer, and to perhaps inspire a few to consider Peace Corps service.
