    Join RPCVs for a blind speed dating event, inspired by the Netflix show "Love is Blind," where people meet without seeing each other and then decide whether or not to pursue something more. It emphasizes an emotional connection with individuals, as opposed to the app "swiping."

    This event will occur virtually and is open to participants from the RPCV community. Once you join the zoom, you will be broken up into 2 person meeting rooms for 7 minutes. Before those 7 minutes are up, the 2 individuals can decide whether or not to share phone numbers/emails before moving on to new people. All cameras will be turned off.

    Join Annie Grayson, RPCV and El Camino Hiker, for a casual information session on hiking. According to REI, "the Camino de Santiago, or the Way of Saint James, is an epic Catholic pilgrimage to the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela. Although the Camino is actually a network of trails, its most popular route, the Camino Francés, spans from the city of Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port at the base of the French Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain."

    Make sure to submit your hiking questions to Social@RPCVW.org prior to the event.
