Sanders helping others in Mongolia.
Nathan Sanders, 22, of Sterling, is finding out, while working in the Peace Corps, stationed in Mongolia.
He is the son of Michael Sanders of Clinton and Andrea Sanders of Sterling.
Sanders graduated from Salve Regina University in May, with a degree in English literature. He had spent several months researching the Peace Corps, his father said, and decided last winter to apply as a volunteer.
He was accepted and in April received a call offering him a position in Mongolia.
His job in the Peace Corps will be teaching English to high school-aged students.
Sanders left for Zuunmod, Mongolia, on June, 11, where he spent a few days before being placed with a host family. From there he went to Erdene for eight weeks of training while living with a family of seven.
On Aug. 15, he received his permanent assignment. He will be spending the next two years near Dalanzadgad, Mongolia, at the southern most part of the Gobi Desert, just north of China.
