Lisle volunteers say Peace Corps changed them
Apr 4, 2014 1:37 PM - A week set aside to inspire, recognize and encourage, National Volunteer Week is April 6 to 13. The week serves as a reminder that everyone can make a difference. President John F. Kennedy saw the opportunities when he challenged young Americans in 1961 to ask, "what you can do for your country?" Within weeks of his inauguration, Kennedy established the Peace Corps hopeful that trained Americans with skilled manpower could be sent to foreign countries to foster world peace.
