A Day in the life of PCV Adrienne

Peace Corps Volunteer making aji using the batan

A true friend is the greatest of all blessings. Meet Adrienne, a fellow Peace Corps Peru 23 business volunteer who spent her two years of service in the cute coastal town of Moche. Her resume includes expert listener, sturdy shoulder to cry on, and delicious brownie baker… as well as IBM consultant, super volunteer and future Peace Corps director. Basically I would not have made it the whole two years without her support!

Youth Entrepreneurs Open a Movie Theatre

For many of these students it was not only a business class, but a process of individual growth. Peruvian schools are centered around a formal education system where the students memorize and repeat all the information… there is very little creativity used in the classroom. So for the seniors in these classes it was an eye opening experience to have to think of business ideas, participate in class discussions, and plan an event in small groups. They started off reserved and ended taking full ownership of their final projects!
