Political science student selected for Peace Corps

UCF political science graduate, Jamaal Weatherspoon, was recently selected for a Peace Corps Health Extension Assignment in Cambodia,

Weatherspoon has worked with the Harvard Center for AIDS Research on national initiatives and as an HIV tester and Peer Educator.

“The opportunity to see the world and simultaneously contribute to its development” is what Weatherspoon said motivated him to join the Peace Corps.

Peace Corps service is a 27-month commitment. Volunteers live and work with a community overseas to reach goals in education, health, business, agriculture, the environment, youth development and more.

Through their service, volunteers increase awareness of America around the world and help our country gain an understanding of other cultures beyond our borders. Currently, 9,095 Peace Corps volunteers serve in 75 countries.
