The Peace Gallery is not part of the United States Peace Corps, which is a federal agency. For information on joining the Peace Corps please visit them on the web (but first take a look around The Peace Gallery to see photos of the work Volunteers are doing around the world).

The Peace Gallery began in 1997 to support the third goal of the Peace Corps - "to strengthen Americans' understanding about the world and its peoples." With hundreds of photos with descriptions by returned Peace Corps Volunteers, the Peace Gallery provides a view of the world rarely seen outside of the Peace Corps experience.
