Past & Future of the Peace Corps

STATE OF AFFAIRS 03/15/11: 2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps. Since its inception in 1961, over 200,000 Americans have joined the Peace Corps and have served in 139 countries. Today the Peace Corps has 8,655 volunteers — about half of what it was at its highest in 1966. This Tuesday, we'll talk to a Peace Corps historian and author about the Corps' story, and we'll hear from a current Peace Corps recruiter and some former volunteers.
