We have nine centralized and eight regional training institutes around the country. See the chart below to see where they are located and their approximate beginning and end dates (these are the dates that corps members will attend the Institute). We consider your current location and conflicts to determine your institute assignment. Depending upon the number of applicants in each institute’s pool, our corps size, and other factors, we may interview some applications to work at an institute other than the one where they would ordinarily be assigned.
