Celebrate Earth Day on the National Mall - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Peace Corps is working on a number of fronts to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day (and Earth Month) - both here at home and in our 76 host countries.  Throughout April, Peace Corps will be sharing highlights from the Peace Corps Digital Library on our social media pages to inform our fans about the environmental work of our Volunteers around the world.

On Sunday, April 25th, Peace Corps Director Aaron S. Williams will be speaking on the National Mall at one of the largest Earth Day events in history being organized by the Earth Day Network. 

Volunteers are needed to help manage this massive event.  All volunteers will get a free shirt and a prime spot to watch the headliner concert 5-7:00 p.m. in a special viewing area. 

Sign up today to volunteer for this exciting event by emailing Please include "Earth Day Volunteer" in the subject line, and specify which of the teams and shifts listed below work for you. After you register, you will receive a follow-up message from us with further event details.
