Join us to welcome back returned Peace Corps volunteers and send off new ones!

 

Boston Area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and the Boston Regional Office invite you to help celebrate our bi-annual WBSO. Welcome those RPCVs returning from service and help send off those embarking on their journeys.  This is a great opportunity to share stories, give advice and network with prospective and fellow RPCVs.  Food and beverages will be provided, but as always feel free to bring something to share. All are welcome! 

Speed Networking Event Creates New Connections

Boston Area RPCVs came together for an evening of sharing, learning and making great connections.  Like-minded individuals working in health, education, business, policy, the environment and much more gathered to network at Lir Restaurant in Boston.  In a format similar to speed dating, RPCVs pitched themselves, met new people, and forged important contacts with like-minded RPCVs in the Boston area.  Click here to see photos from the event.

Welcome Back - Send Off Reception - An Event to Remember!

 “I can say it was one of the most inspirational events I have ever attended in my life and that's almost 70 years of living!” Eric Ericson, RPCV - Colombia, 1963 - 1965
 
Thanks to all those who participated in our spring Welcome Back - Send Off Reception. We ended up bringing together over 225 Boston Area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Peace Corps nominees, an incredible turnout! We had a wonderful evening that celebrated all those coming back and all those leaving soon.  Click here to see photos from the event!
