According to a new report released today by Civic Enterprises and the National Peace Corps Association, in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps, ninety-three percent of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers believe that the Peace Corps has improved the perceptions of the United States globally. Aaron Williams, director of the Peace Corps, stated “This is the most important research in our history and a gift to the nation.” The report, “A Call to Peace: Perspectives of Volunteers on the Peace Corps at 50” is based on a survey that reached 11,000 Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
