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 700-word article or 300-word memoir relating your Peace Corps service – how it had a significant impact on your own life, focusing on individual, a community, the culture or a powerful and transformative event.
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
