By signing an agreement, the United States and Sierra Leone governments
agreed to reestablished a Peace Corps/Sierra Leone program. Sierra Leone hasn’t had a Peace Corps program since 1994.
“I am honored to celebrate the volunteers returning to Sierra Leone,â€? said Peace Corps Chief of Staff Stacy Rhodes (Bolivia, 1968-1970) at the send off celebration. â€œIt is with their enthusiasm, commitment and compassion that the Peace Corps continues to carry the torch of President Kennedyâ€™s dream and responds to President Obamaâ€™s call to service.â€?
