A Day in the Life of a Peace Corps Volunteer
From Jeff Layne
Peace Corps Recruitment Supervisor
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps as a way for Americans to do humanitarian work in other countries. The organization is run by the U.S. government and is still very much alive, as can be seen by Jennifer Clowers’ presentation about her two and a half years working in West Africa. Her presentation focuses on the cultures of Guinea and Niger, the daily life of a Peace Corps volunteer, and the rewards of serving overseas. The mission of the Peace Corps is to promote world peace and friendship.
