The Peace Corps origins date to a speech by Senator John F. Kennedy given at the University of Michigan. His speech urged students "to serve their country in the cause of peace by living and working in developing countries." As of today, the Peace Corps has sent more than 190,000 volunteers to 139 countries in response to President Kennedy's message.
