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.

    Let's check out United Ukrainian Ballet: Giselle at the Kennedy Center. Event begins at 7:30pm. From the website

    This remarkable company of dancers unites in a powerful interpretation of Giselle, specifically created for them by world-renowned choreographer Alexei Ratmansky. Don’t miss a moving interpretation of one of the greatest romantic ballets of all time, performed by world-class artists united by the tragedy of war and an ardent hope for the future.

    I recommend Purchasing Tickets in the 2nd Tier for $39 in Row F between 106 and 138 before the event. There are still some left but worst case if we don't sit near one another we will meet for dinner and/or drinks after. Let's meet in front of the Kennedy Center on the Potomac River Facing Side at 7pm sharp. Please look for the PC Sign or contact the organizer via email or cellphone. Will send more details 48 hours before the event. Depending on group we can meet beforehand for dinner or grab drinks after. Will decide closer to the date. 

    Note: This is not an RPCV/W sponsored event. Photo is from the Kennedy Center website.
