All Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Peace Corps staff are welcome to submit an interview request.

In preparation for the 60th Anniversary of the Peace Corps in 2021, we are currently seeking interviewees representing diversity through the Many Faces of Peace Corps Project and COVID-19 Evacuees.

All interviewers must first be interviewed and trained.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, regular face-to-face interviews have been suspended until further notice. However, through a new partnership with the University of Kentucky Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, interviews can now be conducted using online video conferencing technology.

Be interviewed

  • The project invites Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Peace Corps staff to be interviewed.  
  • “The toughest job you ever loved” is a slogan that resonates with many Volunteers. There are good days. There are great days. There are bad days. Some Volunteers want to stay in their host countries forever; others can’t wait to come home. We all have stories to tell.  
  • Please contact us if you’d like to be interviewed. We will connect you with a trained interviewer. Interviews average sixty to ninety minutes.
  • Contact: OralHistoryProject@peacecorpsconnect.org or sign up here.

 

Become an interviewer

  • The first step is to be interviewed yourself.
  • We are eager to expand the network of volunteer RCPV interviewers.
  • Interviewers are trained and supported by the RPCV Oral History Archives Project Guide. They follow established oral history interviewing guidelines to ensure that highest quality standards are consistently applied.
  • Volunteers procure their own recording equipment and cover minor costs of supplies they choose to purchase.
