Completing the Third Goal

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps to promote world peace and friendship.
The Peace Corps' mission has three simple goals:
  1. Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.
  2. Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.
  3. Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans
As a Peace Corps volunteer one of our three goals is to bring our host country's culture back to the United States of America to share with our family and friends.  One way to do this is to present at a local high school while you are vacationing or visiting the USA.  Here is my presentation that I gave to a 9th grade AP History class in Hudson Falls, New York, USA.
