Peace Corps Week commemorates President Kennedy’s establishment of the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961. During this annual event, the Peace Corps community celebrates all the ways that Peace Corps makes a difference at home and abroad and renews its commitment to service. This year the theme is Highlighting Hospitality: How does your Peace Corps Country Make People Feel Welcome?
There are many ways you can join in the celebration: Lend your social media voice to Peace Corps Thunderclaps, attend an event near you, submit a video to the Peace Corps Week Video Challenge, connect with a classroom, write a blog post, attend a webinar, and much more!
Peace Corps Volunteers, Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, Affiliate Groups, Educators and anyone who supports Peace Corps is welcome!
