The Friends of Costa Rica (FoCR) is an official organization based in Washington D.C. and an affiliate member group of the National Peace Corps Association. Established in 2007 by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs), FoCR connects a community of people interested in Costa Rica. This network includes RPCVs, PCVs, family, friends, other Costa-Rica-based volunteers, and all those interested in giving back to Costa Rica.
FoCR provides assistance and resources to support community driven projects supported by volunteer involvement. In addition, the group coordinates Costa Rica cultural events and aware activities in the U.S., both as a part of the Third Goal of Peace Corps and as a means to strengthen support for the people of Costa Rica.
