Serve where you’re needed most

Ready for something bigger?

Volunteers live and work side by side with community members to partner on locally prioritized projects. Together, they build relationships, share cultures and knowledge, and help transform lives for generations.

A world of opportunities

By pairing skilled Volunteers with welcoming host communities to work in partnership on locally prioritized projects, the Peace Corps offers a world of diverse opportunities for Volunteers to grow their skills, experiences, passions, and aspirations as part of a unique service journey.

Our intercultural approach powers human connection

The Peace Corps seeks to reflect the rich diversity of the United States, and to bring diverse perspectives to our global work both overseas—and when Volunteers return home—to make a hands-on, lasting impact alongside local counterparts and communities.

Support during and after service

The Peace Corps asks a lot of its Volunteers, so we offer support and benefits to Volunteers to help them succeed—during and after service.
