Missoula Montana Is #2 Producer Of Peace Corps Volunteers In The Nation

More than that, they’ve been the #1 producer for the past couple of years slipping one spot to Fort Collins in 2012. I had no idea, but am not shocked. Very cool, Missoula.

Where do volunteers go? (peacecorps.gov)

According to a press release from the Peace Corps:

In 2012, the metro area comprising Fort Collins and Loveland, Colo., is the leading producer of Peace Corps volunteers per capita with 14.7 per 100,000 residents, ousting the 2011 and 2010 per capita leader, Missoula, Mont. The New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island metro area produced the greatest number of volunteers with 345 in 2012, followed by the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria area with 338 volunteers and the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana area with 331 volunteers.

 

For the second consecutive year, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Oregon top the list of volunteer-producing states per capita, with 8.1, 7.2 and 6.4 volunteers per capita, respectively; while the greatest number of volunteers call California, New York and Texas home with 1,084, 448 and 381 volunteers, respectively.
