As the preeminent international service organization of the United States, the Peace Corps sends Americans abroad to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world. Peace Corps Volunteers work at the grassroots level toward sustainable change that lives on long after their service—at the same time becoming global citizens and serving their country.
Volunteers live, learn, and work with a community overseas for 27 months, providing technical assistance in six program areas: agriculture, community economic development, education, environment, health, and youth in development.
