Community Outreach Ideas
Consider the opportunities to let others know about your Peace Corps experience:
- Organize a brown bag lunch at your workplace, offering traditional snacks from the country where you or your family member served
- Set up a display at your local library, featuring crafts, pictures, words from the local language, and traditional clothing and music
- Visit a school in your neighborhood and teach the students how to make a craft that is unique to your country of service
- Team up with fellow RPCVs in your area and put together a presentation at a community center representing many different Peace Corps countries and experiences
- Encourage your local newspaper to run a story about your Peace Corps experiences or to publish a letter to the editor about Peace Corps service
- Contact your local RPCV group or look online to find youth, faith-based, retirement, special interest groups and clubs, and professional associations in your area.
