Peace Corps is an international development agency established in 1961 by John F. Kennedy. It was established as, and remains, an independent agency of the federal government. The mission and three goals of Peace Corps are the same after over fifty years.
1. Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained professional and citizens.
2. Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.
3. Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of all Americans.
The Peace Corps is one of the best experiences you can get after college. It's a great bridge between school and full time work or grad school.
