Innovation in the Field

The Peace Corps embraces change, seeking new and better ways to make a difference. From the ingenuity our Volunteers demonstrate in the field, to engaging the public to share technology expertise, to improving the way we operate every day, the Peace Corps is continuously evolving to reflect the world around us.

I want us to ask ourselves every day, how are we using technology to make a real difference in people's lives." President Barack Obama
