Peace Corps at Florida State University






What is the Peace Corps?

The Peace Corps brings together skilled, committed Volunteers with welcoming host communities for service opportunities in more than 60 countries.

Volunteers live and work side by side with community members on locally prioritized projects, building relationships, exchanging cultures and knowledge, and helping transform lives for generations.


The Peace Corps Mission

To promote world peace and friendship by fulfilling three goals:

  1. To help the countries interested in meeting their need for trained people.

  2. To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.

  3. To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.
