Peace Corps in Ukraine

Follow us and see Volunteers in action:

This page contains personal stories from select Peace Corps Volunteers who served in Ukraine. They represent authentic individual experiences. They do not reflect official guidance of the agency nor the experiences of all Volunteers who serve in the country. The Peace Corps uses first-person stories and personal accounts, whenever possible, to provide a resource for potential Volunteers.

Volunteers in Ukraine work with their communities on locally prioritized projects in Youth in Development, Education, and Community Economic Development sectors. During their service in Ukraine, Volunteers learn to speak Ukrainian and Russian.
