A note about an exciting opportunity from Rebecca Kosowicz ’07:
When I graduated from Bucknell in 2007 I joined the Peace Corps in Mali. After my two years were up I found this great opportunity that led me to stay on for a third year. I will be ending my work with this organization in June and they are looking for interested, inspired individuals to replace my me and the three other volunteer positions on the ground here in Mali, West Africa. I hope you can get this information out to Bucknell student body. The application deadline is approaching so interested applicants should apply soon! If you have any questions or need more information you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and Good luck!
