Kennedy’s New Frontier included the space program, aiming to land a man on the moon by the end of the decade, and the Peace Corps, which sent agricultural workers, health workers, and teachers to assist developing nations.
Kennedy continued to engage in the Cold War with increasing tensions with the Soviet Union. These tensions included indirect conflict with the Soviets such as the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban missile crisis, and the crisis in Berlin. He helped create the Alliance for Progress program, which offered monetary aid to Latin American nations. The funds, however, tended to support repressive, anti-communist governments.
