March 1-7, 2020

Peace Corps Week commemorates President John F. Kennedy’s establishment of the agency on March 1, 1961, and celebrates all the ways that Peace Corps makes a difference at home and abroad.

Theme: Peace Corps 2020+: Building the Future

As we begin a new decade, we look to the future. The world is more connected today than it has ever been. Tomorrow will bring new opportunities and along with them, new challenges.

Since 1961, more than 235,000 Americans have served our country and the global community as Peace Corps Volunteers, living and working alongside local leaders to catalyze change.

This Peace Corps Week, we invite the world to celebrate the ways our host communities and Volunteers are innovating for the world of tomorrow.

As James Baldwin once wrote, “Everything now, we must assume is in our own hands; we have no right to assume otherwise." Let us once again be inspired to a call to act on behalf of others.
