This is the starting place for adding an Volunteer to the Peace Corps Wiki

A Volunteer is a person that served a period of time in the US Peace Corps. Service length is variable (commonly 2 years) therefore completion is not a requirement for inclusion in Peace Corps Wiki volunteer database. Ready? Go ahead and begin or read instructions below {{#forminput:Volunteer|50||Go to Volunteer form|}}

How you title your page is VERY important!
The title of your page will become the name/URL of the page. Correctly titling the page will save work later having to rename/move and relink to the page. Please follow this example and guidelines:

Joseph Smith

  • Start with first then SPACE then last name
  • You may also add your "middle name" between your first and last names
  • Please make sure the Caps Lock is off when filling the form
  • The title of your volunteer article will NOT be used to sort the article in the database, the information on the form you will be sent to will sort your article.
Example Volunteer Article

Special Considerations

  • If the Volunteer was known by a nick name place in parentheses in between first and last name. ex: "Joseph (Joey) Smith"
  • Use middle name only to differentiate from another Volunteer with the same name or if that was the name commonly used.
  • If two Volunteers served as together as a couple please create individual pages on each Volunteer.


  • All articles tagged with: [[Category:Volunteers]] will display the Volunteer Form Tab.
  • All articles use the template Template:volunteerinfobox
  • The form fills the template according to the following fields:
    • |firstname=
    • |middlename=
    • |lastname=
    • |country=
    • |yearservicestarted=
    • |yearserviceended=
    • |groupcode=
