COVID-19 has fundamentally changed our world. But it also showed us how deeply connected we are. And Peace Corps Volunteers and their host communities have an incredible opportunity to shape the future. By working together for a more equitable world. And by strengthening the bonds of our global community.Peace Corps Chief Executive Officer Carol Spahn
