RPCV/W (Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Washington DC) 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. Our organization is passionate about supporting our members' and our community's needs to address white saviorism, disparities, and other systemic issues that are holding us back from a better world. We hope to provide a network of resources and support for our members as we continue serving in our careers and through cross-cultural experiences.


The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Washington DC (RPCV/W) fosters an inclusive network for members to connect through social, professional, and service opportunities. We build upon the skills and experiences of RPCVs to serve our communities and promote a deeper understanding of our world and its cultures.


We envision a world in which all people are respected, valued, and treated with dignity and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers’ knowledge, skills, and perspectives are recognized and utilized for positive change in the Nation’s Capital and beyond.
