  1. Topless dancing girls and naked boys running on the beach: the Peace Corps experience of Gary DeBoer

  2. Welcome Dance

  3. The Ugly Americanby Lederer and Burdick, 1958

  4. Peace Corps began under Kennedy in 1961 "And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man. To those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves..." — President John F. Kennedy

  5. "The spirit of the Peace Corps springs from the deepest wells in our culture, from the reasoned and strongly felt impulses of our people to share with their neighbors their caring and their labor."— President Jimmy Carter "Each one of us is responsible for building the society we want. Peace Corps volunteers do that with people-to-people exchanges, using their energy, their spirit, and their creativity to solve problems. This is the American way. Once we see a need, we want to serve — even when the neighbor we reach out to help is halfway around the world."— President Ronald Reagan

  6. PC Goals • Provide appropriate technical support for host country. • Allow other countries to get to know Americans and learn about American culture. • Bring back the international experience to the US, through talks like this one, so that Americans can learn of other cultures.
