This program immediately follows an orientation program by the Peace Corps Office of Staging and Orientation. It is the trainees first real introduction to cross cultural and technical training, as well as to considering the role of the Volunteer in development work. The program is meant to make the participant a well rounded Peace Corps Trainee who is technically and personally competent and confident when he/she arrives in their country of service for further country-specific training. The trainees leave the SST fully aware that they are expected to complete two full years of productive Peace Corps service.
