Welcome to RPCV/W
Transcript of Welcome to RPCV/W
The DC Metro region is home to more Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) than anywhere else
In 1979, we formed a group dedicated to local and international service.
In 1991, we incorporated as an independent nonprofit.
We work in government, we own businesses, we teach, we represent the country abroad, we hold office...
In RPCV/W, we gather to serve the community and have fun!
Peace Corps encourages its alumni to continue serving their communities once their 2-3 year tours are over
Membership in RPCV/W is not dependent on Peace Corps Service.
Anyone can join. Dues were set at $15 per year in 1985... and haven't changed since!
RPCV/W welcomes Americorps Volunteers, VISTA alums, and anyone with an interest in the group.
