Are you a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer?

Consider Sharing your Experience as a US Peace Corps Volunteer!

We are in the process of creating an online museum of the Peace Corps experience as we work toward our goal of a physical museum, a museum online, and a set of traveling materials that can be used for an exhibit in conjunction with events in your local community.

If you served as a Peace Corps Volunteer, please consider writing down your experiences so they can be shared through the museum with Americans, with your host communities, and with people the world over.  If you have special pictures, videos, or an object that is part of that experience, pull them aside to illustrate your story.

Here are some aspects of volunteer life that may trigger memories and help you write your own stories:
