Join us as we work to ensure a better and stronger Peace Corps as Volunteers return to service overseas.

Two years after all Peace Corps Volunteers were brought home because of COVID-19, they have begun to return to service and are now working alongside communities in some two dozen countries around the world. Invitations are out for Volunteers to return to more than 50 countries.

This is a hopeful time for the Peace Corps. But we’re also living at a time of crisis and war. That makes even more urgent work to build peace and friendship across boundaries — around the world and here at home.


What We Do

We uphold Peace Corps ideals and advance Peace Corps-inspired initiatives.
Nearly 240,000 strong, we are a powerful force for good.

Advocacy

Help Peace Corps be the best it can be.

Raise your voice in support of needed legislative
changes that affect returned and future Volunteers, and help retool Peace Corps for a changed world.
 

Community

Empower yourself, other members, and groups.

Connect with Returned Volunteers from across generations and countries, and in cities, regions, and workplaces, as well as around causes that matter deeply to you — from environmental action to work with refugees.

Impact

Continue making the world a better place.

Support community-based projects that make global giving more efficient, transparent, and effective.
 

There has never been a more pivotal moment to support the Peace Corps.

 

We know that in a changed world, there’s tremendous work to do — here at home and in communities around the world. That’s why we’re grateful for all of you who supported National Peace Corps Association on Giving Tuesday. Every gift makes a difference. 

Peace Corps Volunteer Rok Locksley, who took this photo, was evacuated from the Philippines in March 2020. But his commitment to the work he and colleague Ban-Ban Nicholas undertook in a marine sanctuary is far from finished. We hope you’ll help us advance the mission and values of the Peace Corps through a lifetime of service. Together we can engage more members of our Peace Corps community and increasingly be a powerful force for good.
