Overview

The opening of Peace Corps programs in the Newly Independent States corresponded with the beginning of the end of decades of mistrust and hostility between the United States and the former communist governments in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. In the 21 years that Peace Corps Volunteers have worked in Ukraine, they and their Ukrainian counterparts have faced and overcome a wide range of challenges. Suspicions harbored for years are difficult to overcome. Ambiguity and economic instability have been the norm in Ukraine during the difficult transition to integration with the West. Working and living in a country that is simultaneously deconstructing and reconstructing can often be confusing and frustrating. The Peace Corps has always prided itself on its ability to provide flexible and adaptable Volunteers, and the program in Ukraine truly tests this ability.
The formal agreement establishing Peace Corps/Ukraine was signed in May 1992 in Washington, D.C., by former Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk and former U.S. President George Bush. Since the first group of Volunteers arrived in Ukraine in 1992, more than 2,500 Volunteers have worked in the areas of business development, teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL), environmental protection, youth development, and community development. Currently, more than 280 Volunteers work in more than 150 communities throughout the country‘s 24 provinces and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
Peace Corps Volunteers have defined their roles as agents of change, contributing in a variety of ways to the development of Ukraine into a modern European state.
