Peace Corps is an international service organization of the United States. The Peace Corps sends Americans abroad to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world. Peace Corps Volunteers work at the grassroots level toward sustainable change that lives on long after their service while at the same time becoming global citizens and serving their country.
Peace Corps Week commemorates President John F. Kennedy’s establishment of the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961. During this annual event, the Peace Corps community celebrates all the ways that Peace Corps makes a difference at home and abroad and renews its commitment to service. In 2018, UW was ranked the #1 producer of Peace Corps volunteers among colleges and universities.
