Peace Corps Week celebrates 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, Peace Corps invites current and returned Peace Corps Volunteers to get involved in Peace Corps Week 2014 by participating in our Video Challenge and/or Classroom Challenge. Each challenge, designed to support Peace Corps’ Third Goal of sharing other cultures with Americans, starts on January 1 and continues through the end of Peace Corps Week on March 1. Follow the link to learn how you can participate in one or both of these exciting efforts.
