Summary

For this report on a two-year Peace Corps project designed to implement educational television (ETV) into Colombia schools, the Peace Corps Volunteers who participated are investigated. The history and experience of these Volunteers in the Peace Corps are sketched first. Next, the consequences for them of serving in a large, integrated, special purpose project such as ETV are considered; this discussion leads to the special problems such a project raises for the Peace Corps, and what can be done about them. Following that is a section which examines and analyzes some findings on Volunteer attitude change during service, including an examination of the Volunteers' views, attitudes, and opinions regarding their Peace Corps training, the ETV project, and the Peace Corps. A concluding section details some findings on the changing perspectives of Volunteers during their first and last months of service, usually considered to be especially busy periods of psychological readjustment, which have some implications for Peace Corps training.
