Peace Corp Myanmar

Volunteers in Myanmar work with their communities on projects in English education. During their service in Myanmar, Volunteers learn to speak Burmese. 

Currently, Volunteer worksites are in villages and small towns in Yangon Region, Bago Region, and Mon State. Volunteers will not be assigned to areas where there has been recent or ongoing civil unrest. Volunteers are expected to immerse themselves in their community and commit to staying in their community for the majority of service. 

Volunteers receive a monthly allowance in Myanmar currency (kyat) that is sufficient to live at the level of the local people.
