Asst. PR Director

Posted on August 12th, 2013

In 2011, Peace Corps at 50 published 4 volumes of Peace Corps stories on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps. This year, 2013, marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy who created the Peace Corps by executive order in 1961. The Peace Corps and Caroline Kennedy remain JFK’s only living legacies. The 4 books will be released in digital form this fall, and I (series editor) need help in creating news releases and contacting radio stations for interviews in advance of Nov. 22. This job will involve reading the 4 books to understand what is in them and becoming conversant with what the Peace Corps is all about (plenty of information at CSU, which has always been a significant actor in the Peace Corps Saga). This internship offers an opportunity to take the lead in creating a PR program for a worthy project.
