The mission of the Peace Corps is to promote world peace and friendship by providing qualified volunteers to interested countries in need of trained manpower, by fostering a better understanding of Americans on the part of the people served and by fostering a better understanding of other people on the part of Americans.
The agency fulfills the Peace Corps' mission of providing people to people development assistance at the grassroots level and cross cultural exchange by fielding as many volunteers around the world as it can appropriately recruit, train, program and support at the budget level approved by the congress.
