The Peace Corps Mission
To promote world peace and friendship by fulfilling three goals:

- To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.

AmeriCorps is a national service program designed to strengthen citizenship and the ethics of service by engaging thousands of Americans on a full-or part-time basis to help communities to address their toughest challenges. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) administers AmeriCorps at the federal level and works in partnership with states to develop service programs and create a community-based national service network.
