  • Calling All Returned Peace Corps Volunteers!

    The Smithsonian Folklife Festival invites returned Peace Corps volunteers to visit the Peace Corps program area on the National Mall. There, the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage will be collecting oral histories, facilitating conversations among returned volunteers and the public, and organizing daily gatherings for returned volunteers from all 139 countries where the Peace Corps has served since 1961.

    Visit the Peace Corps for a schedule of reunions listed by countries.
