For Future PCVs

I know that I spent a ton of time looking at people’s blogs to get a sense of how they prepared for Peace Corps and what it was like for them once they got here.

The blog posts will hopefully give you a sense of what the journey in Botswana is like for me, but I put together a couple pages with info I was desperately looking for prior to heading out.

One is my application timeline–from finishing the app to my clearances to staging. Mine moved fairly quickly, but you can see the dates and process laid out for you.

Another is my packing list–the beast that it is. It took a lot of refining to figure out what to pack, so I also posted things that I am planning to get in Botswana, but didn’t want to bring from home.

Hoping it helps you! xx Courtney
