If you are the type of person who cares about the world and the people in it that are less fortunate than you, and you like to travel all over the world and visit places that no tourist ever sees, then you might find joining the Peace Corps is something that you want to do.
But this endeavor isn't for everyone; people that join the Peace Corps are a different breed. The whole thing is about helping people less fortunate in developing countries around the world, so basically you are going to do something meaningful, but you aren't going to get to mess around on Snapchat as much as you might like.
Can you handle being put in situations like being in extreme heat surrounded by bugs and weird looking reptiles? Do you think there are a lot more important things in the world other than money? Do you think sleeping in a nice soft bed and having constant Internet access is totally important?
Joining the Peace Corps doesn't make you a better person than others, but it sure does mean that you have a good set of values and don't mind a little adventure. Take this quiz to find out if you are cut out for the Peace Corps.
