The Need for Peace Corps Volunteers is More Relevant Than Ever

Peace Corps is an international service organization of the United States. The Peace Corps sends Americans abroad to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world. Peace Corps Volunteers work at the grassroots level toward sustainable change that lives on long after their service while at the same time becoming global citizens and serving their country.
