I’ll be serving in Indonesia as a secondary education English co-teacher and teacher-trainer. That means that I’ll be working closely with an Indonesian English teacher. I’ll live with a host family, share a classroom, and try to do what Volunteers set out to do.
The Peace Corps has a three-part mission:
To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.
To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.
To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.
This blog is an attempt to jump into part three. Didn’t know where Indonesia was before you got here? No shame. Let’s learn a few things together.
