Chapter 7 takes a closer look at CARE’s role in the creation of the Peace Corps. It looks at CARE’s stakes in the training and handling of Peace Corps volunteers in the United States and on the ground in Colombia and shows how the transfer of development expertise and knowledge between a private player and a government agency worked. It also traces the development of organizational rivalries and competitive behaviour between CARE and the Peace Corps up to the point where both organizations severed their ties and went their separate ways.

Keywords:   Peace Corps, Volunteers, Recruitment, Transfer of knowledge, Development expertise, Contracting out, Colombia
