Over the past six decades, the Peace Corps has sent over 250,000 young Americans abroad to promote world peace and friendship, but the pandemic has changed the Peace Corps – perhaps irrevocably. With over 7,000 PCVs pulled out of 61 countries in March 2020, and with the looming threat of the Delta variant around the globe, when will the Peace Corps return? Panelists include: Glenn Blumhorst, President and CEO, National Peace Corps Association (RPCV Guatemala 1988-91); Greg Polk, Member, Coordinating Committee of the New Mexico Peace Corps Association, (RPCV Mali 1973-75); and Diego Romero, Invitee for Peace Corps Morocco, UNM graduate and CIR’s 2020 College Intern of the Year.
