Catalyzing Our Community

When President John F. Kennedy launched the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961, he spoke of the great common cause of bringing “that decent way of life which is the foundation of freedom and a condition of peace.” Now—when billions around the world continue to face conflict, poverty, disease, and the erratically changing climate—that great common cause is more urgent than ever.

Expanding Our reach

Peace Corps is arguably America’s most effective grassroots program for human development and cross-cultural bridge-building, and its return on investment is unmatched. Yet public awareness of the government agency’s record of achievement is limited and its impact is vastly under-appreciated.

 
 
 

It’s time to take the next big step

as we approach the 60th Anniversary of the Peace Corps, it is time to be bold.

In recent years, we have witnessed an unprecedented movement of the Peace Corps community around our common cause of prosperity and world peace. The Combined Campaign for the Peace Corps Community seeks to act as a catalyst, turning motivation into tangible results. By ushering the spirit and resources of our community, the Combined Campaign will dramatically raise our visibility, transform the American public’s view of Peace Corps, and lay the foundation for greater impact both at home and abroad.

Initiatives


The Combined Campaign encompasses six independent community-driven initiatives. Together, these initiatives represent the vibrancy of a united and empowered Peace Corps community, a vibrant network of over 235,000 individuals who share the Peace Corps experience, organized through more than 180 grassroots groups that bring about social change.

 
 

peace corps place
