Now that you have been matched with a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal, here are some tips and resources to help you and your volunteer make the best out of this unique program:
Make your expectations clear the first time you and the volunteer correspond. Talk about how you want to correspond, how often, and what topics interest your class the most.
If you don’t have time to write a detailed response, please send a short email telling your volunteer that your class still enjoys hearing about Senegal, since some volunteers get discouraged if their match takes a long time to write back.
