Peace Corps' Information Collection & Exchange (ICE) was established so that the strategies and technologies developed by Peace Corps Volunteers. their co - workers. and their counterparts could be made available to the wide range of development organizations and individual workers who might find them useful. Training guides, curricula lesson plans, project reports, manuals and other Peace Corps - generated materials developed in the field are collected and reviewed. Some are repented "as is": others provide a source of field based information for the production of manuals or for research in particular program areas. Materials that you submit to ICE thus become part of the Peace Corps' larger contribution to development.

Information about ICE publications and services is available through:

The Peace Corps Internet Web Site address:

Please note the new Peace Corps Mailing Address from July 1998 on is:

Washington, DC 20526

Add your experience to the ICE Resource Center. Send materials that you have prepared so that we can share them with others working in the development field. Your technical insights serve as the basis for the generation of ICE manuals, reprints, and resource packets, and also ensure that ICE is providing the most up - to - date, innovative problem - solving techniques and information available to you and your fellow development workers.
