State Department Employees Celebrate Peace Corps Week: The Department of State and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers at State ([email protected]) pay tribute to President Kennedy’s establishment of the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961.  John F. Kennedy’s legacy inspired generations of Americans to serve their country.  Since 1961, more than 230,000 Peace Corps Volunteers have answered the call to service. These dedicated Americans have worked with people in 141 countries to foster world peace and make lasting changes in health, education, economic development, agriculture, environment, and youth development.

For many Peace Corps volunteers, the commitment to volunteer and desire to serve does not stop with their Peace Corps service. Many RPCVs live by President Kennedy’s  exemplary quote, “ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” For the 2018 Peace Corps Week celebration and an ongoing effort to celebrate the one-hundredth birthday of John F. Kennedy, [email protected] has chosen to highlight RPCVs who have continued their dedication to serving the American people as employees of the U.S. Department of State.
