Welcome all prospective applicants, current applicants, nominees, current volunteers, and returned volunteers!

Share your pictures, stories, questions, concerns, and excitement about the Peace Corps. (Please put longer entries or multiple photos behind a LJ cut out of courtesy to other members.)

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps to promote world peace and friendship.
Three simple goals comprise the Peace Corps' mission:
1. Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their needs for trained men and women.
2. Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.
3. Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of all Americans.
