Director (part time)
Museum of the Peace Corps Experience (MPCE) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to collect and preserve stories and objects of material culture donated by volunteers who served in communities around the globe. Through virtual and temporary exhibits and programs, the museum fosters cultural understanding and encourages visitors to serve—wherever they live, however they can.
MPCE was established in 1999 by a group of returned Peace Corps Volunteers in
Portland, Oregon. The group began assembling a collection, organized temporary
exhibits, and pursued funding sources. In 2016, the Portland committee expanded its
vision to the national level and enlisted representatives from across the country to
develop a strategy for launching a national collaboration. The strategy included an
expanded volunteer management team and multi-step process for growing the
museum’s operations and visibility.
Since then, MPCE has developed systems for pre-accessioning and storing the growing
collection, reestablished a Board of Directors, and produced temporary and virtual
exhibits on both coasts. In 2022, MPCE will move into Peace Corps Place, the new
National Peace Corps Association headquarters in Washington, DC where the museum
will have an office and modest exhibit space. MPCE plans to launch a major financial
and programmatic expansion in order to secure funding for additional staff, audience
growth, virtual exhibits, and a future building.
