About Us

The Peace Corps recruits U.S. citizens to serve in more than 70 countries around the world. Since 1961, more than 200,000 Volunteers have served with the Peace Corps to promote a better understanding between Americans and the people of 139 countries.

Throughout its history, the Peace Corps has adapted and responded to the issues of the times. In an ever-changing world, Peace Corps Volunteers have met new challenges with innovation, creativity, determination, and compassion. From AIDS education to emerging technologies to environmental preservation to new market economies, Peace Corps Volunteers have helped people build better lives for themselves. Their work in villages, towns, and cities around the globe represents a legacy of service that has become a significant part of America’s history and positive image abroad.
