Purpose and Function[edit]

The National Peace Corps Association (formerly the National Council of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers) is the nation’s leading 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization connecting and championing Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and the Peace Corps community. It provides service and education opportunities that build on the Peace Corps experience, and is also the longest-standing advocate for an independent and robust Peace Corps. It was founded in 1979 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. It is not a part of the United States Peace Corps, which is a federal agency.

Vision[edit]

The National Peace Corps Association envisions a more peaceful world shaped by greater cross-cultural understanding and lifelong engagement at home and abroad.

Mission[edit]

The National Peace Corps Association connects and champions Peace Corps community members in “bringing the world home.”

Over 140 Peace Corps groups are affiliated with the NPCA. Most of the groups are based in local communities, and others are based on the country of Peace Corps service (called "Friends of" groups).
