Interview with Joshua Rose, December 5, 2023

Project: Peace Corps: The Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Oral History Project

Interview Summary

Joshua Rose, RPCV, served in agroforestry in Jamaica from 2014-2016. He applied on a whim during a transitional time in his life and for the post-Peace Corps government advantage in hiring. He trained in several places in Jamaica, learning policies, the local patois, and agroforestry techniques, living with two separate families. His site placement was in a small village in Trelawny parish. Although he had a host family, he lived in a separate residence down the road and they shared Sunday dinners. He enjoyed the food. He worked for an NGO that liaised with the local farmers and government agencies, started an apiary project, and had a demonstration farm. Joshua met his wife in Jamaica. They married the day after he completed service, but they faced difficulties getting a US visa for her. Joshua is an enrolled tribal member, and he would like to someday start an affiliate group for Native Americans. His Peace Corps experience led to his career with the Bureau of Indian Affairs. He encourages people to join the Peace Corps.
