This program is a volunteer-based project established by Berkeley Peace Corps Club and aims to be a permanent affordable education program in the communities. We are accepting students and recruiting volunteer instructors throughout the year. The courses are running continuously without a start or end date. All new class materials are presented every week. We never repeat or use previous class materials in future classes.
All students are required to volunteer at least once a month with our group at one of our many interesting public service events (mostly in the weekend) in San Francisco and East Bay. We foster volunteerism as part of our curriculum. Volunteer credit/reference will be provided to your school/employer/organization.
