As the face of the American people, Volunteers help the peoples of both our countries come to understand the other – to break down the barriers and misconceptions that too often separate us – and to help us all to recognize not only the values we have in common, but to appreciate the unique contributions that every culture and country adds to the tapestry of our world. In our times, the Peace Corps Volunteer is needed more than ever.
