U.S. Peace Corps representative to appear at upcoming Opportunity Fair

February 5, 2015

As a regional representative for the U.S. Peace Corps, I’m interested in identifying Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) at UW-River Falls as faculty, staff, graduate students, or otherwise.

Whether people served in the Peace Corps decades ago or just months ago, in Africa or Latin America, as health educators or business advisors, there is a community among RPCVs who devoted two years of their lives making a difference in another part of the world.

Often, RPCVs continue to make a difference in their local communities in the U.S. by applying skills and experience gained while in the Peace Corps. I’d like to connect RPCVs with each other, with Peace Corps, and with hopeful volunteers. I’ll be in town on Feb. 19, for the campus Opportunity Fair and a Peace Corps information session. Details are available at peacecorps.gov/events.

I look forward to meeting people while there, but I also encourage anyone to get in touch with me in advance at jmcinerney@peacecorps.gov or 651-210-2011.
