Chris Robinson tagged Malcolm Odell's When and how do we best make case that Peace Corps is crucial to National Security? with ask this question 2014-10-14 09:51:11 -0400
When are we going to get serious about making the case to Congress and the American People that Peace Corps is at the heart of national security. Doubling, tripling the size of Peace Corps--amounting to only to the cost of a few hours of one day's national budget--will do more to win hearts and minds around the world that our our greatest protection against terror. It's our friends who are more likely to alert us to terror plots, dangerous people, and violent organizations more than all our astronomic investments in NSA, CIA, FBI, and DoD. America, with it's massive military presence around the world has now become the most feared nation in the world. We're no longer the 'beacon of light on the hill' that the world looked up to. Making the Peace Corps into a significant, sizeable, visible program is one of the best ways to reverse the negative view that people around the world now have of America and restore our status as a moral leader in the world.

And is that likely to change in the future?
Chris Robinson tagged Kristin Pettersen's Is PC working on improving support to non-generalist RPCVs? with ask this question 2014-10-14 09:49:15 -0400
For RPCVs who are in technical fields prior to PC and wanting to go back into them post-PC, how is PC supporting them now and how will they work to improve their support to them in the future (As most RPCV career services support is currently focused on generalists)?
Chris Robinson tagged Kelsi Ward's How does PC coordinate with other U.S. govt agencies to leverage resources and expand impact? with federal 2014-10-14 09:48:42 -0400
Although I think it is important to maintain the autonomy of Peace Corps, I think there are significant opportunities for Peace Corps to coordinate with other agencies (i.e. State/ USAID) to help expose emerging leaders from rural communities to the embassy network and engage PCVs in nominating/introducing non-traditional participants in new activities (i.e. ECA exchange programs, YALI, etc.) I know there are existing partnerships and collaborations but I'd love to hear more and how this may move forward in the future.
Chris Robinson tagged What can smaller groups do that larger ones can't? with local 2014-10-14 09:52:34 -0400
We all know that the larger the organization, the more rules it must abide by. What functions can smaller, more informal groups perform at the grassroots level to help our community that are not feasible or permissible at the national or federal levels?
