RPCV/W is an organization for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and our community members to convene and connect through social events, professional development activities and community service opportunities to give back to the DMV. We are passionate about supporting our members' and community's needs to address white saviorism, disparities, and other systemic issues that are holding us back from a better world. We provide a network of resources and support for our members as they continue serving in their careers and through cross-cultural experiences.

We welcome all who share an interest in world affairs and a commitment to local volunteerism.

Board Nominations are open for the year 2023!
