What's Your Third Goal?

The Third Goal of the Peace Corps aims to help Americans understand the people and cultures of other countries. As a RPCV, we need your help! Every month, the CU Boulder Peace Corps representative holds information meetings on campus. We are always in need of returned volunteers to attend these meetings who are willing to share some of their experiences and answer questions from prospective volunteers. Giving students insight into your life and experiences in the Peace Corps will help in promoting and spreading Peace Corps enthusiasm. To find out when and where meetings will be held, contact the campus representative.

CU Buff Pride! We are looking for University of Colorado alumni who have served in the Peace Corps. If you graduated from CU and are a RPCV, please send an email with your name, country of service, years of service and what year you graduated from the University of Colorado to peacecorps@colorado.edu.
