Peace Corps Anniversary Begins to Take Shape
By Erica Burman on Thursday, June 24th, 2010
The Smithsonian Folklife Festival just announced that it will feature the Peace Corps as one of its themes. Volunteers will be on hand June 30, 2011 – July 4, 2011 and July 7-11, 2011 to share their Peace Corps experiences, photos, and stories. The festival is expected to draw over a million visitors.
We at the National Peace Corps Association could not be more excited to welcome all of the people who care about the Peace Corps, including those who have served, to our home base Washington, DC. We will be taking an active role in promoting and planning events around the Smithsonian Folklife festival.
If you would like to learn more about our schedule of events for the 50th celebration, please sign up here.
Everyone who signs up on this list will be the first to learn about new events and dates to help you plan ahead for the 50th anniversary celebration. It’s not easy to be sure that everyone is part of the celebration. We hope that all Returned Peace Corps Volunteers will share this link with their Peace Corps fri
ends so that everyone can be there for the celebrations around the world.
The National Peace Corps Association is spearheading the kickoff to the 50th anniversary year at the University of Michigan in October. Learn more here.
