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 2,574 pages that have been written and edited by (R)PCVs and Friends of Peace Corps from around the world. This wiki, designed and operated by returned Peace Corps Volunteers with no government funding, provides the transparency called for by President Obama to enable the public and potential Peace Corps Volunteers to view extensive information about the agency's operations and Peace Corps service.

To get started try a small tutorial, or go to a random page...
Statistics



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.

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. Current Volunteers should still keep in mind their own safety and security, cultural sensitivity, and the fact they are in-country representing the United States. See Manual Section 204 regarding Volunteer conduct and Section 543 regarding Volunteer use of information technology tools.

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.
