Have you heard about Peace Corps? It is an American volunteer program run by the United States Government plus the government agency with the same name. Peace Corps have three very important missions or goals: first, helping people outside united states to understand US culture, second, to provide technical assistance, and lastly, to help Americans understand the cultures of other countries. There is generally related to social and economic development. A Peace Corps volunteer should be an American citizen, usually with college degree, who works abroad for 24 months after getting the training of three months. These volunteers normally work with different organizations and groups such as schools, governments, non-government organizations, non-profit organizations, and entrepreneurs in education, hunger, business, information technology, agriculture, and the environment.
After they have finished their 24 months of service, volunteers could still request for an extension if they still wish to help and offer their service. Peace Corps were issued by President John F. Kennedy and was established by Executive Order 10924 on March 1, 1961, and announced via television broadcast on March 2, 1961, and it was authorized by Congress on September 22, 1961, with the Peace Corps Act (Public Law 87-293). This is what is written in the act: “To promote world peace and friendship through a Peace Corps, which shall make available to interested countries and areas men and women of the United States qualified for service abroad and willing to serve, under condition of hardship if necessary, to help the people of such countries and areas in meeting their needs for trained manpower.”
