We're All in This Together

The NPCA/Peace Corps Mentoring program was started in 2007 with a fundamental goal in mind: to connect recently returned Peace Corps Volunteers with RPCV mentors.

Via phone, email and face-to-face meetings, these mentors help ease the difficult transition, provide a connection to the RPCV community at large, and say some of the most comforting words in the English language, namely, "I know what you're going through. I've been there."

Promoting Peace and Friendship

The Peace Corps traces its roots and mission to 1960, when then Senator John F. Kennedy challenged students at the University of Michigan to serve their country in the cause of peace by living and working in developing countries. From that inspiration grew an agency of the federal government devoted to world peace and friendship.

Service, Education and Advocacy

Founded in 1979 and incorporated in 1983, the National Peace Corps Association is the non-profit organization connecting, informing and engaging those influenced by or inspired by the Peace Corps experience.

Participating Groups

Thanks to the NPCA Member Groups that have already signed on to administer the RPCV Mentoring program by matching mentors with mentees. We would love for all Member Groups to get involved! Please contact mentor@rpcv.org for more information.
