Peace Corps

A female NC State student talking to young children during her peace corps mission.

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.

501 NC State Graduates Have Volunteered

Right now there are 24 NC State graduates serving in the Peace Corps in 17 countries, from Benin to Zambia.
