Peace Corps Oral History Project

“The University of Maine at Farmington plans to present “Departures: Peace Corps Pandemic Stories,” a multimedia exhibit inviting audiences to engage with the voices and stories of Peace Corps Volunteers and staff who were impacted by the global suspension of Peace Corps programs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Between February and March 2020, the United States Peace Corps — a volunteer service agency established by President John F. Kennedy — evacuated over 7,000 volunteers from sites in more than 60 countries.” See full story with link to the video oral histories here.
