Episode 1: Navigating the “R” of RPCV: What to Do When You’re Back Home
RPCVs Coleen and Patrick discuss how to navigate some common challenges Peace Corps Volunteers face after finishing their service, and how recently returned PCVs can use the transition back to prepare for their personal and professional next steps.
Date: Monday, February 19, 2018, at 4 p.m. PST (7 p.m. EST)
Coleen Bremner is in the throes of her first year as an MPA candidate. She received her BS in communication studies with a minor in journalism from Southern Oregon University. She went on a two-year adventure in the Gambia as a health education volunteer and is currently a Coverdell Fellow at the Middlebury Institute. She is a Twizzler lover, works nights fighting crime, and loves running (and by running, she means out of time, money, or because there is food in front of her.) She is excited to answer your questions.
Patrick Kennedy is a joint MPA/International Education Management candidate at the Middlebury Institute. He received BAs in history and international studies at Presbyterian College in South Carolina and served as a Youth in Development volunteer in Guatemala (2013–2015). He hopes to cultivate a bridge between academia and community-driven development. He is passionate about representing community perspectives through international education.
