About Peace Corps - The Ohio State University

The Peace Corps is a federal independent agency of the United States government. Peace Corps Volunteers serve in 60+ countries, primarily in the following sectors: Agriculture, Community Economic Development, Education, Environment, Health, and Youth in Development.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. There is no upper age limit. Volunteers must be U.S. citizens.

In the Peace Corps, we take a different approach to making a difference. Our Volunteers are inspired by impact that is hands-on, grassroots-driven, and lasting. By immersing ourselves in communities abroad, the Peace Corps works side-by-side with local leaders to tackle the most pressing challenges of our generation. From leading health campaigns to boosting local entrepreneurship to teaching digital literacy, the Peace Corps offers a range of opportunities for our Volunteers to take on new challenges.
