Pass the Education for All Act
Global Education is the National Peace Corps Association's (NPCA's) current global issue of the month.
For 55 years, tens of thousands of Peace Corps Volunteers have provided educational support to tens of millions of people across the globe. We have a tremendous story to share which goes beyond our Peace Corps service, as education remains a significant focal point of NPCA affiliate groups. At the same time, the Peace Corps is a central player in Let Girls Learn, a multi-agency initiative of the Obama administration to coordinate and expand opportunities for learning.
Nearly 125 million children and youth around the world are not in school, and the Peace Corps community can be an important, experienced voice in advocating for improving this condition. In Congress, the bi-partisan Education for All Act is one way to further promote U.S. global leadership on this issue. Ask your Representative to co-sponsor the Education for All act today.
