Description

Join the National Peace Corps Association and local Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) for a discussion honoring President John F. Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of his death. Since President Kennedy created the Peace Corps in 1961 through an executive order, more than 210,000 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in 139 countries throughout the world. Join us to discuss that service and to learn about the challenging, rewarding, and inspirational moments of service from a panel of RPCVs who served in different decades of the Peace Corps' existence.
