11 February 2013

Ben Jacoff ’07 is profiled by the Peace Corps’ Midwest recruiting office in a Feb. 5 blog post. Jacoff, who participated in Carleton’s Mali study abroad experience with professor of French Chérif Keïta, was inspired to give back to the greater world during his time in Mali, resulting in his Peace Corps experience. During his time in Togo, he served for two years as a community health volunteer where he organized summer camps for children affected by HIV/AIDS and trained local health volunteers on lessons they could share with their communities. He extended his service a third year to help coordinate trainings for incoming volunteers.
