Peace Corps Volunteers know that service isn’t a bucket list item; it’s a life-long dedication. Once you are part of the Peace Corps family, you are always a member. No one knows that better than Lindsay Carrera, a Hartland, Wisconsin, native who recently completed her service in Uganda.
“I have always wanted to do Peace Corps – since I was young,” Carrera said, “I love learning about people and trying to help. It was an educational experience.”
As a primary education teacher trainer in Uganda from 2013-16, Carrera provided training and support to elementary school teachers. She also worked intensively with administrators and primary school management committees to improve education in her community.
