New Peace Corps Pledge perfectly encapsulates vision and goals of service.

If you ever wondered what Peace Corps service was all about and what it means to us, read our new pledge written for the swearing-in of volunteers.  It was written by Meleia Egger, former RPCV to Malawi and current Peace Corps Third Goal Program Specialist.

The Peace Corps Pledge:

I, first, last name, promise to serve alongside the people of country of service.

I promise to share my culture with an open heart and open mind.

I promise to foster an understanding of the people of country of service with creativity, cultural sensitivity and respect.

I will face the challenges of service with patience, humility and determination.

I will embrace the mission of world peace and friendship for as long as I serve and beyond.

In the proud tradition of Peace Corps’ legacy and in the spirit of the Peace Corps family — past, present and future — I am a Peace Corps Volunteer.

Meleia Egger, RPCV Malawi, 2007-2009
