Peace Corps Week 2014 challenge!

January 3rd, 2014 by bobebill

Dear Friends of Cameroon,

You’re invited to answer the Peace Corps Week 2014 challenge! Peace Corps Week celebrates the anniversary of President Kennedy’s establishment of the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961. It takes place from February 23 to March 1 but you and your group members are encouraged to take part in activities starting today and continuing through March 1.

You can participate in two ways:

· The Classroom Challenge encourages RPCVs to connect with U.S. classrooms to share their Peace Corps country’s culture with American students. Get involved and get your country of service and/or state on the map!

· The Video Challenge invites RPCVs to compete to win best video that showcases “What I wish Americans knew about my Peace Corps Country.”

Visit the Peace Corps website to get all the details and to begin planning how you’ll answer the Peace Corps Week 2014 challenge! Additionally, we’ve provided these promotional materials and photos that we encourage you to use to promote Peace Corps Week in any of your group’s regular communications such as websites, newsletters, emails, or social media.

We appreciate your help in getting the word out to your members and look forward to seeing all the great activities you organize this Peace Corps Week!
