Today is the Peace Corps National Day of Action.
It also happens to be the day I finally uploaded some of the many photos from my tour of duty in Turkmenistan.
A coinsidence, I think not!
The Peace Corps comes up for me on a nearly daily basis. In fact, I spoke on a panel about social media for non-profits last week and mentioned that I was a Peace Corps and AmeriCorps volunteer and that it was National Peace Corps week. I had instant connections with several people in the audience who came to me later to discuss their experiences in the Peace Corps, too.
So what’s the difference between National Peace Corps Week and the Peace Corps National Day of Action. Well, while last week was about sharing our stories with you. Today is about asking you to take action.
