Our Production
Bring the World Home is designed to fulfill the third goal of the Peace Corps, to educate Americans about the other countries in which volunteers have served. Volunteers are interviewed about their service abroad, describing the people, culture, life overseas, working conditions, the work accomplished and how these experiences have changed them.

Each show requires assistance from up to 10 volunteers who comprise the production team, approximately 80 hours of volunteer time are required per taping. The project is in its 8th year of production, since its conception in 2002 more than 77 episodes (37 hours) have aired involving the dedication of more than 1000 volunteer hours. Each program airs a minimum of 4 times, and as many as 8 if used to fill alternative time slots.

Production tapings are generally at the Mapunapuna Station of 'Olelo Community Television.
