Director's Welcome

We welcome you to explore the Peace Corps Philippines’ website. Through these images and words we hope to convey the dynamic diversity of this archipelago with over 7,100 islands, 150 languages, multiple ethnicities, famously warm and friendly people, and continually evolving development concerns. In partnership with our Filipino host agencies Volunteers are working with counterparts and community members to address some of the most challenging issues; the impact of climate change, disaster risk reduction & management, and coastal resource management, providing training, mentoring, livelihood skills and support to vulnerable youth populations, teacher training in formal education settings and education to out of school youth.
