Thank you for helping RPCV/W plan more events and provide more services to the community!
We hold various events throughout the year that transcend our typical social, professional, or community service activities. Three stand out in particular:Annual Holiday Party and Silent Auction (December)
Summer Barbecue (June/July)
RPCV/W also plays a major role in commemorating key anniversaries of the Peace Corps. In September of 2011, RPCV/W planned, funded, and implemented a two-hour ceremony at the Arlington National Cemetery Memorial Amphitheater, which was attended by over 5,000 and included a march of flags across the Memorial Bridge and into the National Mall.
Overseeing all of this is our Special Events Director, who can be contacted at [email protected], if you would like to help with planning or volunteer your services at a particular event.
Feel free to peek at old entries, maybe we've already answered your question.

This philosophy guides our private Linkedin group, where we post jobs, advertise specialized events and pose general questions.
Unlike our Facebook Group, much of the action here goes on behind the scenes. Many use it to arrange informational interviews through private messages. All members of the group are expected to entertain informational requests from qualified job seekers.
Once inside, click the Members tab to search group participants by job title or organization. You may also pose general questions in the Discussion section, but typically a direct ask more productive. The rules are as follows:
What you can post:
- Job openings and internship opportunities from reputable employers. Please delete your post once the position has been filled.
- Free networking events, job fairs, or public events of interest to job-seeking, Washington-area RPCVs.
- Requests for informational interviews from RPCVs working in specific sectors, agencies, industries or regions.
What you can't post:
- Anything involving fundraising, unless your organization is sponsored by RPCV/W as its current Partner for Peace.
- Any "opportunity" requiring payment or purchase.
- Requests for donations to Peace Corps projects abroad.
- Housing requests and offers. Take them to the Facebook group
