June 28-29 Annual Gathering of the National Peace Corps Association

This used to be an annual tradition and was recently reinvigorated.

NPCA invites you all to Boston, Massachusetts on the weekend of June 28-29, 2013 for an event that will encourage you to continue “bringing the world back home” while visiting with friends and having fun.

Since this is for the Peace Corps community, key elements of this event will be highly interactive and incorporate career networking and knowledge-sharing.  By bringing our collective experiences together can support each other and help to solve important development challenges.

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter using hashtag #PCCBOS13. For more information and to register, go here

2013 VAC Calendars

Once again, we supported the Peace Corps volunteer community in Ecuador with their annual calendar sales. This year we were able to sell nearly $700 of calendars on our site to support worthy grassroots projects in Ecuador and help the volunteers sell out of all their calendars! We will provide you with an update on what projects those sales supported, and when the 2014 calendar is available later this year, we plan on making them available again through our site. We have seen some of the photos volunteers are putting together for the 2014 calendar, and it once again promises to be beautiful. If you missed this year’s selection of photos, check our Flickr stream for the full set of pictures.
