    Join RPCV/W as we carve and decorate pumpkins. Please bring your own pumpkin and we will provide the carving tools. Feel free to also bring decorations and whatever else you'd like to use to decorate your pumpkin. We also suggest you bring a blanket, as the ground might not be ideal to directly sit on.

  • Stop by our monthly board meeting to learn how RPCV/W gets things done!

    We will be opening up both our October and November board meetings as we recruit for board positions that will be opening at the end of this year. Side note: technically our board meetings are always open to members, so stop by whenever! The new board year will start in January 2019.

    Following the October meeting, we will convene afterwards for drinks at Dacha Beer Garden in Shaw (1600 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20001).

    This event is for anyone interested in learning more about how RPCV/W works, what different board and committee positions are available, and how to get involved.
