Welcome to the Columbia River Peace Corps Association.President’s welcome, by Chuck McConnell (Ukraine 2008-2011) Thanks for finding our website. We hope that, after paging through this overview of the Columbia River Peace Corps Association and our activities, you’ll decide to engage with us. We are an association of returned Peace Corps volunteers, but membership and our activities are for anyone who shares our commitment to Peace Corps’ Third Goal (“to help Americans understand the people and cultures of other countries”), local community service, and good fellowship with old and new friends. For RPCVs, CRPCA is a way to meet, and stay connected with, “like-minded people” who truly understand the power of Peace Corps service. For those considering Peace Corps, CRPCA is a network of returned volunteers, eager to share their excitement and experiences. And for anyone who shares our interest in person-to-person international service, CRPCA is a place to meet people with practical overseas experience. So, browse our site. Pick an activity and discover our vibrant community of Returned Peace Corps volunteers.
