"Working with the Peace Corps should not be like working with another government agency. We have a special mission which can only be accomplished if everyone believes in it and works for it in a manner consistent with the ideals of service and volunteerism."
-- R. Sargent Shriver
The Milwaukee Peace Corps Association is pleased to offer the Sargent Shriver Award for Community Service and Volunteerism.
