Peace Corps Prep

Are you looking for:

  • A way to put your Mines engineering or science degree to use in service to others?
  • An international job that’s also an adventure?
  • A chance to build peace and understanding between peoples?
  • An opportunity to serve your country — and the world?

HE is proud to be a partner in the Peace Corps Prep certificate program at Mines.

It is the first in the state and is a joint program of Mines and the US Peace Corps. The program will help you become a better Peace Corps volunteer candidate and a better global citizen.

The Peace Corp Prep certificate is designed to be earned through your HE coursework.
