Are there any paying careers similar to the Peace Corps?
Question by Nathaniel: Are there any paying careers similar to the Peace Corps?
I have always been interested in forestry, yet I recently realized that I really want to travel the world, possibly helping other, less fortunate people. The Peace Corps sounds great, but I would like to do something like that for most of my life and make a career out of it, and I believe the Peace Corps only allows for 2 years. I am a senior in high school, and am considering my options, thanks!

How about working for an environmental nonprofit such as the Sierra Club or Friends of the Earth? Contact a few of the organizations on this list to see if they could use an intern for next summer. You probably wouldn’t be paid yet but you’d get a chance to see if this would be a good career for you and you’d gain some experience that would make you more marketable when looking for a paid position. Many of the organizations on this list work to prevent deforestation while at the same time attacking its root causes such as poverty and ignorance of sound farming practices.
