Peace Corps Fellows
SWCOS is deliberately recruiting Returned Peace Corps Volunteers to enter graduate studies in Social Work and to assist with urban challenges. These individuals bring prior experience working with marginalized communities and foreign language skills to their tasks, making it easier to connect with foreign born populations.
SWCOS Health Fellows engage with individuals, organizations, and communities to identify barriers to health and create solutions to overcome those barriers.
By placing SWCOS interns into at-risk neighborhoods we rebuild the social fabric of communities through coordinating block projects, strengthening the housing market, reducing the risk of predatory lending and reaching out to new immigrants to include them in home ownership opportunities.
