The Museum welcomes stories from returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
You may donate an object and propose a story or artifact from your time in your host country of Peace Corps service.
You may submit a 600-800 word story about a singular incident or a series of similar incidents that highlight meaningful interactions with the local culture, knowledge gained through service, or bringing that cultural knowledge home. Additionally, we are interested in stories that include memories and perspectives from host country nationals who interacted with Peace Corps volunteers.
All drafts or summaries are submitted with the understanding that the Museum’s editors and curators may suggest improvements or deny publication of the final drafts.
“For every young American who participates in the Peace Corps—who works in a foreign land—will know that he or she is sharing in the great common task of bringing to man that decent way of life, which is the foundation of freedom and a condition of peace.” – President John F. Kennedy, March 1, 1961
