Purpose and Function

It provides service and education opportunities that build on the Peace Corps experience, and is also the longest-standing advocate for an independent and robust Peace Corps. It was founded in 1979 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. It is not a part of the United States Peace Corps, which is a federal agency.

The National Peace Corps Association envisions a more peaceful world shaped by greater cross-cultural understanding and lifelong engagement at home and abroad.

Mission

The National Peace Corps Association connects and champions Peace Corps community members in “bringing the world home.”
