This summer, I was lucky enough to work as the photo intern for the Peace Corps.
One of my responsibilities was to shoot various events called stagings. Stagings occur the day prior to Peace Corps Volunteers’ departure for their country of service, where they will spend the next 27 months.
Until their arrival, the volunteers have no idea of what they will be doing or what type of conditions they will be living and working in. They go only with a few suitcases, and the will to serve.
The volunteers you see above are now serving in El Salvador.
