Peace Corps Volunteers

Peace Corps Volunteers make a difference! Their service improves the lives of people in communities around the world, informs the global perspectives of Americans, and is a life-defining experience for Volunteers themselves. Volunteers receive practical benefits, learn new languages, gain leadership and international development experience, and work with their host countries as partners and friends.

Watch Peace Corps' film short, Be a Volunteer, and learn about the unique experience and benefits of service.
