Ron Tschetter is the former director of the United States Peace Corps, having served under President George W. Bush from 2006-2008. He is only the third director in Peace Corps history to also hold the distinction of being a former Peace Corps volunteer. He credits his 2-year service working on community health planning in India with his wife Nancy in 1966 with changing his perspective and outlook on life—permanently.
In a conversation with Matt Ehlman, Ron will share how both Peace Corps experiences changed his life, and discuss leadership in volunteerism and how service can help improve the lives of others as well as the life of the volunteer.
Ron was confirmed as director of the Peace Corps in 2006. Under his leadership, the Peace Corps launched their “50-plus initiative.” This program aims to increase the participation of volunteers aged 50 and up. Ron believes that this segment of the population has wisdom and experience to bring to their volunteer efforts, as well as a passion to serve.
