Posh Corps is a documentary that focuses on the lives of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa.
For fifty years, Peace Corps volunteers have been working in under-developed communities around the world. They have played a significant role in the development of the countries in which they serve. As these countries become more modern, Peace Corps Volunteers are faced with a question, has Peace Corps become Posh Corps?
South Africa is one of the most modern countries in which Peace Corps Volunteers serve. Through the eyes of volunteers in South Africa, we discover that modernization does not necessarily make life easier. Volunteers in South Africa struggle with unique issues created by rapid development. They come to terms with economic disparity, extreme cultural diversity, and their own expectations.
Posh Corps provides a unique glimpse into the future. As the third-world slowly becomes the first-world, the struggles of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa provide a window into the struggles of volunteers throughout the developing world.
