I was looking at joining the peace corp following my college graduation next year. I would like to try something before i commit to the two year deal.

Does anyone know of any similar programs where you work for like 2-4 months and they provide room and board. I am getting a degree in secondary education. I also have alot of voulenteer local exsperince

I know this might not be too close to what you are looking into but it is somewhat similar: conservation corps. You live together esentually in the middle of nowhere with people you don't know and do conservation projects. If you had a degree you could possibly be a leader of a group of about 10. It is somewhat similar and a whole lot of fun!! Commitments vary in different organizations but range from two months to a year.
I did two sessions with the Youth Corp of Southern Arizona.
