Peace Corps Seventh Annual Report.
Vaughn, Jack, Ed.
This seventh annual report of the Peace Corps states that the two greatest achievements of 1968 are intangible. First, the Peace Corps achieved a new measure of cooperation with the people in its host countries. In the summer of 1968 for the first time, hosts helped to recruit volunteers in the United States and became members of overseas staffs. Second, as volunteers came home, hundreds answered the call of large cities seeking high-quality teachers for low-quality schools. Also during 1968, the Peace Corps shifted a large portion of its training out of the United States and into host countries. Pre-service language training was further intensified. In the future, as more Volunteers apply to the problems of the United States the knowledge and insight acquired in helping people overseas, the full value of the kind of "education" Peace Corps experience can provide will be realized. (The document includes a statistical profile chart for 1968.) (se)
