More About Peace Corps

Make a difference in the lives of others and your own. As a Peace Corps Volunteer, you will help a community in need, gain valuable cross-cultural skills, and become a citizen of the world. Other benefits include full health and dental coverage in service, graduate school programs, and federal employment advantage.

More than 8,000 Volunteers of all backgrounds and ages are serving in a variety of fields in more than 75 countries. Peace Corps Volunteers must be U.S. citizens and at least 18 years of age, but there is no upper age limit.
