Since 1961 the US Peace Corps has sent almost 250,000 Americans abroad to serve as Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs).

Volunteers serve for 27 months in one of over 60 different countries. They work alongside their community members on development projects involving Maternal and Child Health, deforestation, English and Math Education, Business Development, IT management, and more.
