Peace Corps Leaders

  The Peace Corps has revealed its enrollment numbers for 2014, and several areas in our region have ranked high on their lists of volunteer-producing locations. 

Peace Corps officials say Vermont is continuing its ranking as the top state for the per capita production of Peace Corps volunteers.

Since the Peace Corp was created more than 50 years ago, 1,453 Vermonters have served as volunteers across the world.

Only the District of Columbia has a higher per capita ranking.

Officials announced the rankings Wednesday.

The same rankings found that New Hampshire ranked fourth and Maine eighth.
