Improved Communications Will Help Drive Growth of Application Submissions, Increase Volunteer Retention and Improve Family Communication

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GovDelivery, the leading cloud-based digital communications solution for government, announced today the Peace Corps has implemented GovDelivery to inform and engage a larger digital audience in order to increase recruitment, promote the Peace Corps message, and nurture the global Peace Corps Community.

The Peace Corps will use GovDelivery to streamline currently disparate communication efforts, create and increase brand awareness via templates and design attributes, and provide segmentation and targeting capabilities to reach key stakeholders and drive action. With this technology, the Peace Corps is focused on reaching more people, measuring the impact of its digital communication programs, and driving engagement for key stakeholder audiences.

The Peace Corps will also use the GovDelivery Network to tap into a built-in audience of more than 90 million civically engaged citizens, supporting its goal to increase recruitment by engaging more potential volunteers.

“The Peace Corps mission creates real change for the people it serves,” said Scott Burns, CEO and co-founder of GovDelivery. “We’re thrilled to help the Peace Corps further its impact in the world by helping it reach and recruit more volunteers through digital communications.”
