Session Abstract (150 words): 

Over fifty years ago, President Kennedy launched the Peace Corps, an innovative new program to spearhead progress in developing countries and promote friendship between the United States and the people of the world. Over the past decade, the Peace Corps has been honing its ability to measure its effectiveness at Goal 1: Building Local Capacity, but less effort has been dedicated to improving our metrics for Goal 2: Sharing America with the World. This “Birds of a Feather Gathering” will focus on identifying creative approaches to measuring the Peace Corps’ ability to share America with the world. As part of the discussion, we will share past efforts to measuring success that have been used by the agency. We hope the session is lively and fosters innovative thinking on what America, when delivered by the Peace Corps, has to share with the world.
