Peace Corps 50th Anniversary

Since 1961, the Peace Corps have sent over 200,000 volunteers and trainees to 139 different countries to promote peace and better the lives of communities and individuals around the world.

In celebration of the success that 50 years has brought, a number of events will be taking place in–you guessed it–Washington, DC! To view the complete list, click here. Some events you may be interested in are the photo contest for Peace Corps volunteers past and present, and the commemorative art display at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Congrats on 50 years, Peace Corps!
