Peace Corps Week     March 1-7, 2004

To commemorate the 43rd anniversary of the founding of the Peace Corps, returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) will celebrate Peace Corps Week on March 1 through March 7, 2004. 

RPCVs will be visiting classrooms, community organizations, and workplaces throughout the United States to share the knowledge and insights gained from their overseas experiences. 

As every RPCV knows, part of the Peace Corps' mission is to educate Americans back home about the people with whom they

lived and worked. When RPCVs speak about their Peace Corps experiences, they enrich the lives of students, neighbors, and colleagues. RPCVs also raise awareness of the Volunteers' ongoing global contributions and plant the seeds of community service. 

Peace Corps Week is your opportunity to promote a better understanding of the people of your host country among the people of your current community. 

Last year, more than half a million students welcomed RPCVs into their classrooms nationwide.

RPCVs also gave presentations to community groups, at their workplace, and in places of worship. Through the sharing of their overseas experiences, RPCVs build bridges across cultures.
