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.

Note: The beginning articles and original outline of Peace Corps Wiki were copied directly from the official Peace Corps website which is in the public domain in the United States, and outside of copyright, as it is a work of the United States Federal Government under the terms of 17 U.S.C. § 105. External links within Peace Corps Wiki have been included to pages within the official Peace Corps website, where appropriate, for more information as to the official position of Peace Corps Headquarters.

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 without bias.
