Peace Corps Celebrates Anniversary
Students in the University of Florida's Peace Corps program are sharing their experiences and volunteerism as they celebrate the Corp's fiftieth anniversary.
Since 1961 the volunteer program has made strides to help educate, spur economical development and serve as advocates for the environment.
The program has been a part of the University of Florida's campus for at least 20 years and is currently the second best ranked program in the U.S.
In addition to serving the world around us, the Peace Corps helps improve relations with countries who may have misconceptions about Americans.
Tonight the celebration continues from 7 to 9 at Villa East off Main Street for volunteers and past Peace Corps members.
