Peace Corps 50 yrs ago

Did you know it was fifty years ago that John F. Kennedy signed an order that established the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961. The Peace Corps has made a difference in the lives of people living in developing counties and in the lives of the volunteers who work in those lands. We have on order a new book by Stanley Meisler “When the World Calls”. This book carries us through organization’s fifty-years of history and leaves us convinced that 200,000 volunteers really did make a difference.
