Today I launched ThirdGoal.com

thirdgoal.comWhen President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps in 1961, he created three simple goals for the organization. The third goal was (and still is) to “Help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of all Americans.”

And so Third Goal was born.

Third Goal was created out of a desire to provide Peace Corps volunteers a free, easy, and independent way to share their stories with the rest of the world, not just Americans.

By offering a consolidated venue for all Peace Corps volunteers, the public receives a concentrated resource of first-person experiences from worlds very different than their own.

If you are a Peace Corps volunteer and would like to share your stories with others, you are invited to create an account. Third Goal will offer you a free place to log your experiences for others to read in real time. More so, your real-life stories will help shape Americans’ understanding of other peoples.
