Helping fishermen on the coast of Peru

Peace Corps Response volunteer Christopher Giordano with Mercedes Tume, a local fisherman.

SMEA (’16) graduate Chris Giordano recently wrote a post that was featured on the Peace Corps Response’s website. In the fall of 2016, Chris joined the Peace Corps Response, which sends experienced professionals to undertake short-term, high-impact service assignments in communities around the world. He went to northern coast of Peru where “the bulk of my time has been in a support role for my socio, Inkaterra Asociacion, drawing on my recent master’s degree and experience to help my counterpart form their first set of marine projects while teaching the team how to think about coastal conservation.” In his post, Chris reflects on his past year of service and the amazing opportunity it provided him.
