Mobilizing for a Lifetime of Service and Impact

Virtual Conference September 23–25, 2021 | Pre-conference events September 18–22

 

This is a pivotal moment for the Peace Corps community. This year we mark six decades of service by Volunteers in communities around the world. But this is also an unprecedented time for the Peace Corps. In March 2020, all Volunteers were evacuated because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In a community-driven effort, National Peace Corps Association is working to help transform Peace Corps: to reimagine, reshape, and retool the agency for a changed world. So while we celebrate this historic milestone, we also focus on the work that must be done to make a better and stronger Peace Corps for the future.

In a robust digital program over three days, we will be looking back at impact over the decades — and to the future of what Peace Corps needs to be. Conference sessions will address issues important to the community, from racial justice to climate change to refugees. In addition to the conference, there will be a broad range of pre-conference events September 18–22. That includes a Day of Advocacy on September 22, marking the date on which President John F. Kennedy signed the Peace Corps Act.
