The Peace Corps (an independent US Federal Agency) takes 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.

The 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 with teaching and mechanical instruction. So far there have been over 1,200 volunteers who have assisted many Gambian communities over the years.
