applications from US citizens who are over the age of
18 years for voluntary field work in The Gambia and
other countries around the world and offers a start
to their working careers.
Today there are around 122 volunteers working in rural
village communities in The Gambia.
organisation promotes awareness and provides instruction
in the fields of agriculture, education, engineering,
environment, community development work and health care
including HIV/Aids prevention. People can serve for
up to 60 months under the "five-year rule".
In 1967 the Ministry of External Affairs signed a Memorandum
of Understanding with the Peace Corps Volunteers. Later
that year PCTG volunteers started services beginning

Gambian communities over the years.
