Peace Corps @ 50

Tuesday, March 1st, marks the 50th Anniversary of Peace Corps. This has been an occasion for much nostalgia and retrospectives.

I spent almost a year traveling around the world and spending time with the volunteers of today, and I have published a book that shows that Peace Corps is still relevant today. There have been changes – technology being the biggest. However Peace Corps volunteers continue to serve under the same mission and goals as it did when founded fifty years ago.
