Last week the Peace Corps celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a gathering at the University of Michigan. There is a great summary of the events on CFHI’s blog
It was at UM that John F. Kennedy spoke about a generation of young adults going abroad, making connections and giving service. The events on the anniversary of that day focused on continuing the movement, scaling-up and creating a lasting impact.
Everyone that has ever been a volunteer, been impacted by international service or supports international volunteering can now join this movement. Service World has a site where you can sign Declaration for International Service and write what your experiences have meant to you. Be part of the movement http://ourserviceworld.org/take-action/
