Ethiopia VII   Advanced Training Program

The following Peace Corps Volunteers trained at UCLA and participated in an Advanced Training Program — that is, they had training during the summer of 1965 (between their junion and senior years of college), and then again in the summer of 1966. 39 trainees then went to Alemayeh College, the agricultural school of Haile Sellassie I University in Harar Province for additional training. (This was the first in-country training conducted by PC/Ethiopia. Most of the Volunteers in this group worked as teachers.

Thanks to Carol Cordy and Sarah Samuel for both sending listings that were very helpful in putting together this list. And a special thank you to Sarah for sending copies of both the training book for the group from UCLA/Phase II as well as the book from In-Country Training.

Thanks for the photos from:

  • Randy Marcus

    • Harar's hyena man - 1966 Taken outside one of the gates to Harar — also part of VII ATP in-country training - Hyena 101.
