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.
The 2018 Peace Corps Week theme is Highlighting Home: What does home, family, and community look like in your Peace Corps country?
Volunteers are welcomed into the hearts and homes of their Peace Corps communities and gain new families in all shapes and sizes during service.
This Peace Corps Week we are celebrating the host families, faces, and places that Volunteers call home during service.
