Projects in Samoa


Peace Corps Samoa’s current program focus is on promoting English literacy in Samoan primary schools. The Primary School English Literacy Project was developed in close partnership with the Ministry of Education, Sports, and Culture (MESC) and was officially launched in fall 2012. Volunteers in the Primary School English Literacy Project play an important role in helping Samoans develop the skills they need to succeed and thrive. Volunteers not only build the English literacy skills of students but help teachers incorporate student-centered teaching methods. They also work to improve information and communication technology resources and to increase the community’s involvement in literacy activities.

Peace Corps Response

Peace Corps Response sends experienced professionals to undertake short-term, high-impact service assignments in communities around the world. Peace Corps Response Volunteers are expected to possess the technical skills needed to fulfill their assigned role with minimal training.
