    Interested in advancing international development? Want to put your cross-cultural skills to work?

    Come join us for a panel discussion with current USAID employees and recruiters from the Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI), Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), and the Office of Food for Peace (FFP) who will discuss career paths and opportunities in the U.S. government and international development. Panelists will share their personal experiences, answer questions about their respective sectors, and provide advice on how to pursue futures in international development and government as a personal services contractor. The discussion will be moderator led, then open to the audience for Q&A. Following the event, there will be informal networking and a happy hour. See below for panelist organizations and information. This event is open to all RPCV/W Members and non-Members.

    Ticket Required RSVP Limit

    Join us for our biggest event of the year, bringing together hundreds of RPCVs and friends of all different ages and countries of service, and from all across the District-Maryland-Virginia area.

    This year's event will be held at Saint Yves, located at the intersection of 18th and Connecticut NW. RPCV/W will have the whole place to ourselves (!) from 7-11pm. The venue is conveniently located between Farragut West and Dupont Circle metros -- the use of public transportation is highly encouraged.

    The event will feature a limited open bar, hors d'oeuvres, a wine toss, music, photo booth, and other surprises. Please contact our Special Events Director to request any special dietary needs or accommodations.

    New 2020 Board to be Announced!

    This will also be a chance to meet RPCV/W's 2020 Board of Directors! Elections will take place in November (stay tuned to our newsletter and social media for details) and the new board will be present to greet members. The out-going board will be there to pass the torch. 

    Volunteers Needed

    We are in need of three volunteers to assist with set up, logistics, and other event details. For those interested in volunteering, please email specialevents@rpcvw.org as soon as possible. 

    Wine Toss and Raffle

    We're bringing back the fun! This year's venue will have plenty of nooks and crannies for dancing, photo-taking, and activities! If you are willing to donate wine, or can solicit wine donations on RPCV/W's behalf, please contact Development Director Jonathan Keenan at development@rpcvw.org. We will also hold a raffle with some fun prizes -- if you have gift cards, gift baskets, event tickets, or anything of the like you'd like to donate to the cause, Jonathan will coordinate these donations. Companies interested in sponsoring the event are also welcome!


    Thank you, and we look forward to celebrating another wonderful year with our amazing DC Peace Corps community, all in one great place!
