Peace Corps Recruiter

Jessica Vandivort de Montiel is the U.S. Peace Corps Recruiter for Western Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska. A graduate of Truman State University, Jessica worked in employee benefit sales in Kansas City prior to serving in the Peace Corps. As a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala, Jessica partnered with local Education and Health Ministries to develop rural youth development programs, empowering youth to lead healthy lives and to commit to positive roles in their communities. Following her volunteer service, she remained in Guatemala and continued to support Volunteers and Guatemalan partners as the Peace Corps Youth Program and Training Specialist. A strong believer that every American should be given the opportunity to serve, she returned to Kansas City as a Program Officer for the Corporation for National and Community Service, overseeing federal Senior Corps and AmeriCorps grant programs in Kansas and Missouri. Recently returning to Peace Corps as a Recruiter, she is thrilled to support the agency from her hometown.
