Our Goal: Bigger, Better Peace Corps

Secure More Peace Corps Funding

Since March 1, 1961  more than 220,000 Volunteers have served in 140 different countries. In an ever-changing world, Peace Corps Volunteers have met new challenges with innovation, creativity, determination, and compassion while helping people build better lives for themselves. There is great potential for more Volunteers to serve. You are needed to help make that happen.
