In 2011, the Peace Corps will commemorate 50 years of promoting peace and friendship around the world.
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy signed an Executive Order establishing the Peace Corps. Over the past five decades, Peace Corps Volunteers have served in nearly 140 countries.
Peace Corps was established in Ukraine in 1992 when Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk and American President George Bush signed a bilateral agreement to establish a Peace Corps program in Ukraine.Since that time the United States Peace Corps has cooperated with numerous progressive organizations. American Volunteers work and live side by side with Ukrainian colleagues for two years sharing experiences.
If your organization wishes to invite a Peace Corps Volunteer to work with you, please contact Peace Corps to request an application.
