Voices from the Peace Corps

The Peace Corps experience as related by the six volunteers over the five decades have brought about crucial effects on their lives as some of them had been able to discover what they wanted to pursue as lifelong careers. Also, some of them wanted to continue learning more about other cultures, and they have been able to relate and apply their experiences to their families and students. This chapter first reviews the Peace Corps's third goal and talks about how the volunteers have been able to bring the world back, particularly in Kentucky. As the chapter also provides an examination of how the Peace Corps was able to influence their worldviews, their chosen careers, as well as their personal lives, it provides some accounts of how they were able to contribute to the betterment of the United States, specifically to Kentucky.
