Peace Corps Wiki is a collaborative project whose goal is to create a free, interactive, and up-to-date source of information about serving as a volunteer with the U.S. Peace Corps. Anyone is welcome to edit, add, or change any entry, or start a new one. So far there are a total of 9,749 pages that have been written and edited by (R)PCVs and Friends of Peace Corps from around the world.

The 2008 Sichuan Earthquake was a major earthquake struck Sichuan Province, China on May 12, 2008, killing tens of thousands of people. The final death toll has not yet been assessed. All current Peace Corps volunteers are safe and accounted for, but the disaster has likely affected thousands of former students of Peace Corps volunteers.

About Peace Corps

Since 1961, the Peace Corps has shared with the world America's most precious resource—its people. Peace Corps Volunteers serve in 73 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East. Collaborating with local community members, Volunteers work in areas like education, youth outreach and community development, the environment, and information technology.

Current Volunteers

Serving for two years in the Peace Corps may seem like a long time, but Close of Service may come faster than you expect. Volunteers can make the most of their time in-country through well organized material, collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Returned Volunteers

Your time as a Peace Corps Volunteer doesn't end when your two years of service are over. The time you spent in the Peace Corps will continue to enrich your life, both personally and professionally, for many years. And, in keeping with the Peace Corps' third goal, you'll have new opportunities every day to share what you've learned in the Peace Corps with fellow Americans.

Peace Corps Wiki welcomes all objective points of view about Peace Corps, including the negative aspects of volunteer service. That being said, all articles and contents should be written from a neutral point of view, representing views fairly, proportionately, and with a balanced perceptive of the issue. <comments showurlfield="false" />
