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.
