1. It’s easier than ever
In July Peace Corps announced historic changes to its application process. The online form is doable in under an hour; you can help choose the country you’d like to volunteer in (there are still no guarantees) and what you’d like to do there; and you’ll hear within a year about that acceptance.
2. Immersion in another culture
By spending two years in a foreign country — often living with host families — PCVs become immersed in ways unheard of when travelling as a tourist. You’ll experience day-to-day living first hand, from the highs to the lows.
3. You’ll learn a new language (or become fluent in the one you’ve been studying)
Immersion naturally means volunteers speak that country’s language (that can mean drilling down to region-specific dialects). Yes, it’s a challenge, but once selected, PCVs undergo a two- to three-month training period during which they receive intensive language instruction from native speakers as well as technical details about their volunteering duties.

Just to give you a sampling of the types of articles on DevEx: Follow the link after the informational blurb below!
“Speaking a second, third or even more languages is a common skill in the international development sector. Living in different countries provides ample opportunity for learning a new language, and those interested in this line of work tend to also be the kind of people attracted to foreign language study.
English fluency has become a requirement for most international development positions, as it has solidified itself as the dominant international language. But what if you don’t speak a second or third language? Is it necessary to learn one if you want to pursue a career in global development? While the benefits of being multilingual in an international career may seem obvious, the decision to tackle a new language isn’t as clear.”
