Hi, I'm really interested in doing the Peace Corps at some point, but I also have decided I want to do a probably year-long Americorps program before I turn 24--the cut-off age for most programs (so I can be involved in my own country first. I have already applied to the Peace Corps and told them I was available to start in October 2011 and my recruiter told me I'd most likely be nominated. If I decide to do an Americorps program between now and the Peace Corps, would I have to apply all over again or would I could I temporarily withdraw and use my same application. Thanks in advance for an experiences and advice!
I don't know which programs you are interested in, but thecut-ff of non-NCCC, City Year type AmerCorps programs is some absurdly high number like 200 years. I'm a 26-year old current AmeriCorps member doing Peace Corps after my service year. :)Anyway, I believe you can use the same app minus any outdated check-up health requirements.
