Hands on DC is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that organizes projects to improve the physical condition of Washington, DC public schools. We also raise funds to support local college scholarship programs and encourage greater community involvement in the public schools.
Join fellow RPCVs for a Hands On Work-a-Thon where we will work on projects at a DC public school ranging from mulching, gardening, weeding, painting hallways, painting murals, cleaning classrooms, etc.
Join us for a Saturday bike ride on the Capital Crescent Trail from Georgetown to Chevy Chase and back down through Rock Creek. Meet at Dean and Deluca in Georgetown around 10am. Call or text if you're running late. The full route is about 20 miles. We're planning this event to celebrate Bike Month 2014, so wear your helmet! Here's the route:
If you have a first aid kit, repair kit, or extra water you can bring just in case, please let Chris know. We look forward to seeing you!
All current and prospective mentors and mentees are invited to this event to mingle, meet others in the program, and possibly even find your mentor/mentee match. Please email Josh Gill (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about the RPCV Mentoring Program.
I loved my Peace Corps experience and I love sharing it with others. I also love dinamicas (aka. ice breakers) but my office doesn't seem to appreciate them like my Honduran counterparts. If you feel the same way, join us on May 17th! RPCV/W will host a cultural day with the youth of Coalition for Economic Empowerment. Bring something from your country of service to share, including food, pictures, souvenirs, maps, or anything you can think of. Please also let me know if you would like to lead an activity with the group.
The Coalition for Economic Empowerment's mission is to transform the quality of life for at-risk families in the District of Columbia by providing the bridge to self-sufficiency through personalized and community-based employment and education services.

For the third year in a row, we’re collaborating with PC/HQ to carry the flags of our host countries in the Capital Pride Parade and make a public statement of solidarity, acceptance, and support. All are welcome: Invite your friends and family to march along! We’ll be working with Spectrum, the Peace Corps’ LGBTQA employee resource group to coordinate. Details and happy hour dates are forthcoming.
