Annually, the U.S. Peace Corps ranks the cities and state for the number of volunteers. In the recently released annual ranking for 2016, Colorado is featured twice in terms of volunteers per capita (per 100,000 residents):
- Colorado ranked 8th for the number of volunteers per capita
- Boulder ranked 6th for the number of volunteers per capita for a metropolitan area.
Congratulations to the Peace Corps Recruiters who continue to help recruit Peace Corps Volunteers and who ensure Colorado consistently ranks in the top ten.
