You may already know that all Peace Corps Volunteers must be U.S. citizens of at least 18 years of age. Here are a few things that might surprise you: There is no upper age limit. In fact, the oldest Volunteer ever to serve in the Peace Corps was 86. You don't have to know another language. Having a four-year college degree by the time you're ready to leave for the Peace Corps will help your chances of acceptance. But it isn't absolutely necessary, and for some programs work experience, relevant skills, and/or a community college degree can qualify you.

One can work for Peace Corps as soon as he or she is available for volunteering work in the areas of education, health, community development, agriculture, environment and IT. One should support also the goals of Peace Corps.

you need absolutely no training what-so-ever to join the Marine Corps. The Marine Corps itself will provide any and all required training.
