Peace Corps Countries 2019

The Peace Corps is a program that was launched by the U.S. government in 1961. The program went into effect after an executive order was signed by President John F. Kennedy and was later authorized by Congress through the passage of the Peace Corps Act.

The goal of the Peace Corps is to provide technical assistance to other nations to bolster social and economic development. The Peace Corps also aims to promote mutual understanding between Americans and the natives of the countries that the program serves.

The Peace Corps is a volunteer program. Most volunteers are citizens of the U.S. who train for three months before traveling overseas for two years. Volunteers go abroad to work with entrepreneurs, nonprofits, schools, governments, and other organizations.

Volunteers from the Peace Corps have served over 141 countries since the program’s inception. Over 235,000 volunteers have joined and provided services abroad through the Peace Corps.

Since it was first launched, Peace Corps volunteers have visited these nations:
