Supporting the Third Goal of the Peace Corps

To increase the understanding of the peoples served on the part of Americans.
Peace Corps Fund dove
For Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs), this not only means sharing their experiences and knowledge of their countries of service, but remaining active citizens engaged in community and national service.

The Peace Corps was founded by President John F. Kennedy’s executive order on March 1, 1961, and established by the Congress’s passing of the Peace Corps Act(hyperlinked). Since then, starting with Ghana in 1961, more than 230,000 Peace Corps Volunteers have answered the call to service and committed themselves to three goals of the agency.
  • Contribute to the development of critical countries and regions.
  • Promote international cooperation and goodwill toward this country.
  • Contribute to the education of American and to more intelligent American participation in the world.
RPCV groups in every state have built a powerful force for domestic community service that strengthen communities and help those in need. RPCVs are active and engaged citizens that bring the world back home.
