If you served as a Peace Corps Volunteer or Peace Corps staff member (former or current) and you would like to share the story about your service, please complete this contact information form. The Peace Corps Oral History team will be in touch with you to schedule an online interview with one of our experienced Returned Peace Corps Volunteer interviewers.
Interviews focus on the interviewee's years of service, but briefly cover pre-Peace Corps life, motivation to become involved with the Peace Corps, on-boarding process and training, and conclude with current activities and reflections. The length of interview is up to the interviewee, who is free to discuss whatever is important to them. However, interviews typically take over an hour.
Due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, interviews will be recorded online using video conferencing technology. The collection of completed interviews will be made easily available to researchers and the general public through a free online public archive at the University of Kentucky Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History.
