Will Dickinson

Volunteer: Will Dickinson


Will served in Armenia from 2004 to 2006 as an environmental education volunteer in the towns of Jermuk and Ijevan. After a year in Jermuk, Will found that there was not sufficient work to keep him occupied. He documented and presented this information to the country administration and was allowed to change sites. At the new site in Ijevan, Will engaged in a productive educational leadership program that focused on community planning and training. This program was designed to train local community stakeholders in the use of new technologies such as GPS and GIS and was funded by World Vision and the EU. The remainder of Will's Peace Corps service was spent working on this project. He is a graduate of University of Pennsylvania. PeaceCorpsJournals and PeaceCorpsWiki are run in his spare time.
