Peace Corps Week

February 24 - March 2, 2019

Peace Corps Week commemorates President John F. Kennedy’s establishment of the agency on March 1, 1961, and celebrates all the ways that Peace Corps makes a difference at home and abroad.

2019 Peace Corps Week theme: "A day in the life..."

This year's video challenge is now closed.

What does a day in the life of a Peace Corps Volunteer, host family member, counterpart or community member look like in your Peace Corps country? This Peace Corps Week we challenged you to support the Third Goal of Peace Corps and teach Americans about your host country’s culture through a one-minute video. Share what life in your country looks like with the world!
