I am now an official Peace Corps Volunteer!!! The Peace Corps was started in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy to promote world peace and friendship. Since then over 210,000 volunteers have served in 139 different countries, however the Philippines is the second country volunteers were ever sent to. I have now joined this force and am one of the 273rd batch of volunteers trained to serve here in the Philippines.
