“My Life as an Older Peace Corps Volunteer”

April 15, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
The Great Hall, Annie Wright Schools, Tacoma

In September 2002, after 20+ years in Student Services at Pacific Lutheran University, Beth Ahlstrom became a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal, West Africa. Hear what it's like to learn two foreign languages, live in a developing country with a family of twelve (most of whom are under the age of 18), take a bucket bath, and work in a Muslim culture in your mid-fifties.

About Beth Ahlstrom:

Upon completion of her Peace Corps service in 2004, Beth Ahlstrom worked at UWT in the Global Honors program and has worked for the Washington Student Achievement since 2007 managing the College Bound Scholarship program, a state-funded scholarship for low-income students. Beth continues to travel and in the last four years has visited Syria, Oman, Cameroon, the Central African Republic and, most recently, Malawi and Zambia.
