Kennedy Peace Corps
Kennedy was talking to students and challenged them to live and help in other countries. Kennedy asked his brother-in-law to put together peace corps. The Peace Corps started on March 1, 1961. Soon they received invitations to put peace corps in Ghana, India, and Burma to place peace corps volunteers there.
His brother-in-law is Sargent Shiver. Shiver has been known for inspiring people to do things. He helped out in starting the peace corps.
