Volunteering and Development: Mobilizing for Global Impact

Jack Morton Auditorium at The George Washington University




9:00 to 11:30 a.m.


805 21st Street, NW
Washington, DC 20052


Peace Corps and the U.S. Agency for International development (USAID), in commemoration of the Small Project Assistance (SPA) program's 30th anniversary, are pleased to invite you to join us in exploring the critical role that volunteers play in community development.

Around the world, international and community volunteers work side-by-side, mobilizing community members in implementing grassroots development projects. At the event, we will discuss key questions such as: Do volunteers play a unique role in global development? Is volunteering the key to local capacity building? In an era of shrinking budgets, can "sweat equity" replace dollars?


Ms. Carrie Hessler-Radelet, Acting Director, Peace Corps

Dr. Rajiv Shah, Administrator, USAID

Dr. Timothy P. Shriver, Chairman of the Board, Special Olympics International

Ms. Marg Mayne, Chief Executive, VSO International
