Dear Group Leaders,
I'd like to bring to your attention an op-ed that was published in the
Monday, October 24 edition of USA Today entitled "Peace Corps Needs
Makeover" by freelance writer Laura Vanderkam.
Here is the link:
While we are always interested in looking at ways to strengthen and
improve the Peace Corps, the NPCA staff feels that this op-ed devalues the
meaningful development work that PCVs do, fundamentally misunderstands the
historic mission of the Peace Corps and misrepresents the Peace Corps
Please consider informing your members about this op-ed and encouraging
them to share their opinion with USA Today.
Letters to the editor can be sent electronically to
