Since 1975, the Annual Volunteer Survey has been a source of information on the state of the Peace Corps program for the agency, Congress, researchers, the media, and the general public. The purpose of the survey is to assess progress toward the agency’s strategic goals by tracking the perceived impact of Peace Corps Volunteers’ work. The survey also captures Volunteers’ assessments of the effectiveness of Peace Corps training, their personal health and safety, their overall service experience, and in-country staff support. The report details the key findings which are based on global data.
