Welcome to the Peace Corps/Jordan

The Peace Corps has temporarily suspended its program in Jordan. Please click here to read more. 

This site was created to share Peace Corps experiences and resources with others. Peace Corps Volunteers have been working and living in Jordan since 1997. Since then, Peace Corps Volunteers have worked to address the specific needs of Jordan, its people and its resources.
