Peace Corps Stories

The Minority Peace Corps Association would like to publish your Peace Corps experiences as an African American, Asian American, Hispanic American or Native American on our WordPress website under Peace Corps Stories. If you represent one of these groups, please submit short stories, journal entries, personal essays, poems, pictures of you at your Peace Corps site, or submit answers to the questions listed below. The subject matter must be related to your Peace Corps experiences as a person of color.

If you are submitting a story, submissions must have a title, be presented on one side of an 8 1/2″ X 11″ sheet of paper, and be no longer than 750 words. If you are submitting a picture(s), please make sure your name is printed on the back of the picture(s).  All submissions must include your name, address, telephone number, current address, e-mail address, country and years of service, and what you did in the Peace Corps, including secondary projects.

The intent is to have interesting material published on the web for the perspective candidate looking for specialized information related to their interests. When writing your personal essay or answers to the questions, please keep in mind information you would have thought useful when applying to the Peace Corps.


  1. Why did you join the Peace Corps?
  2. Do you think you have changed because of your Peace Corps experience? How?
  3. Describe your Peace Corps experience as an African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic or Native American in your country of service.
  4. What benefits have you gained from joining the Peace Corps?

(When answering these questions, please provide in-depth responses, so that perspective candidates will gain a personal insight to the Peace Corps.)
