Serving in Sister Agencies: Peace Corps Celebrates AmeriCorps Week

As part of our celebration of AmeriCorps week, we wanted to share the story of Elmer Weaver, a former AmeriCorps and Peace Corps member.

Weaver knew that he wanted to give a year of service after he graduated college, so he applied to both AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps. As luck would have it, he was accepted into both programs. Weaver decided that a year with AmeriCorps NCCC would prepare him for a year in the Peace Corps, where he later served in Azerbaijan.

Watch his story:
