On March 1, 1961, President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps to promote world peace and friendship. Since that time, more than 200,000 volunteers have served in 139 countries and 1,666 OSU alumni have numbered among them. Peace Corps volunteers must be U.S. citizens and at least 18 years of age, but there is no upper age limit to serve. Peace Corps service is a 27-month commitment, including three months of comprehensive culture, language, program, and safety and security training
Peace Corps volunteers work in the areas of education and English teaching; agriculture, forestry and environment; public health and HIV/AIDS; youth and community development; math and science, and engineering; and business, planning and IT. Today's volunteers are tackling important global issues such as education reconstruction, HIV/AIDS and malaria prevention, food security, clean water accessibility and environmental conservation. Volunteers become well integrated into their local community, treated as extended family members and valued as contributors to development. Benefits offered with Peace Corps service include graduate school programs, paid living expenses, full health and dental coverage, readjustment allowance, federal employment advantage, and field experience and cross-cultural skills.
The Peace Corps has three simple goals:
Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.
Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.
Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.
