choose the Peace Corps. The Peace corps mission statement is “to promote world peace and friendship by fulfilling three goals: To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women, to help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served, and to help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans” (“Peace Corps Mission And Vision Statement Analysis”, 2020, para. 3). As the mission statement is supposed to describe the action(s) that the organization should take in the near term to achieve its vision (“Mission, Vision, and Values”, n.d.), I believe that the Peace Corps does have a good mission statement. The vision statement is supposed to express the organization’s all-encompassing aims of what it hopes to accomplish or be. The Peace Corps vision statement is “to work for the world” (“Peace Corps Mission And Vision Statement Analysis”, 2020, para. 5). If the purpose of the vision statement is to inspire people to want to be involved with the organization, I feel like the Peace Corps could have a better vision statement. A statement such as, “To work for the world to foster relationships of diversity” would be more appealing to the demographic that they are hoping to join forces with.
