What We Do

We are a diverse group of natives, transplants, old, young, all bound by having served our country as volunteers, and working together to continue promoting the Peace Corps. PPCA works to support current volunteers and serves our communities in the shared values the organization was founded on back in 1963.


Get to know other volunteers, network for jobs, or just come for one of our pub nights or campouts!
