*You do not need to be a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer to qualify for some positions!
This is my host brother having his hair washed by my host mom. He was born only a week after I arrived at my site. Because of that, it was always easy to remember how old he was. I took this picture close to the end of my service, so that means Jose is almost 2 years old here.

Congrats on your service, Bernie!
Fast Company - 2010
A year ago today, this was our first post on Tumblr.
We thank all our followers for sticking with us. We can’t wait to spend another year sharing the Peace Corps story with all of you!
P.S. We still need a few more followers (2,500!) to reach our goal of 15,000 followers in our first year, so please spread the word!
Here’s one of the vintage PSAs we shared earlier this year in honor of our 50th
“I’m inspired by the work of Peace Corps Volunteers around the world. Volunteers share their creativity and compassion with their local communities. I hope this print inspires the next generation of Volunteers.” - Shepard Fairey
Fairey has a personal connection with the Peace Corps through his sister, who served as a Volunteer in Togo.
