Peace Corps Community Center
The Peace Corps Community Center, to be located just blocks from the Peace Corps agency headquarters and Capitol Hill, will transform the 22,000-square-foot former Langston School building into a thriving hub of Third Goal engagement. Once renovated, the former school will be a center for learning and service, where the Peace Corps community can model best practices in promoting prosperity and peace right here at home. It will incorporate additional spaces, including an auditorium / event space and an expanded WorldView Café and Market.
