Who We Are



After a very successful turnout for a Peace Corps 50th Anniversary event held in Reston, Va. in April 2011, the Northern Virginia Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (NOVA RPCV) decided to organize into a NPCA Affiliated RPCV group. The first NOVA RPCV meeting convened on April 27th, 2012.

The vision of the Northern Virginia Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (NOVA RPCV) is to build an international network of Peace Corps alumni to foster peace through better understanding of other cultures and social and physical geography.  We encourage mentoring of potential and returning PCVs, working together in local service projects, and promoting the Third Goal of Peace Corps. We host quarterly general meetings, where we share food, conversation, and listen to a guest speaker relevant to the international community. General Meetings are normally held quarterly on the second Sunday (February, May, August, November).  Our dedicated Board meets on the Sundays in the off months. Both Board and General meetings are open to all. 

To find out more about Northern Virginia Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, please continue check out our mission, our board, and our official documents  and  meeting reports. And of course, feel free to contact us at any time.
