Every March we commemorate President Kennedy's establishment of the Peace Corps in 1961 with an entire week devoted to honoring the work of Peace Corps Volunteers and the people that support them. That's 55 years of service!
Peace Corps Week this year is Highlighting Happiness and showcasing what joy and celebration looks like in the countries served. Help us celebrate with a Thunderclap heard round the world on March 1, Peace Corps' birthday!
