~ President John F. Kennedy, March 1, 1961.
Since President John F. Kennedy introduced the Peace Corps almost sixty years ago more than 220,000 American women and men of all ages have served in a variety of assignments in 140 countries. While working in cross-cultural environments, volunteers acquire records of their experiences and come home with many stories and artifacts from their service abroad.

Peace Corps Connect Austin 2019
Nicola Dino at the CMPCE table
The Heart of Texas Returned Peace Corps Association, otherwise known as the HOT RPCVs, did a great job welcoming all of us to PCC.
The Committee for a Museum of the Peace Corps Experience had a very successful visit with all of you who stopped by the exhibit table. Thank you for buying our tee-shirt, “there are VOLUNTEERS among us,” signing our membership list, and attending our presentations.
We met old friends and made new ones. It is gratifying to make connections at PCC with people who share the values of NPCA and CMPCE.
