Who we are and why we are here. 

The purpose of FCRPCV is:
  • to be the alumni association of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Staff
  • to provide an organization for anyone interested in the mission and work of the Peace Corps; and to become the essential resource for and about the Peace Corps in the First Coast
  • to educate Americans about other countries and cultures and to facilitate engagement in global issues based on our collective Peace Corps experiences
  • to support the Peace Corps and National Peace Corps Association and to promote policies consistent with their missions, goals, values and activities

National Peace Corps Association Affiliation: 

As of June 16, 2008, FCRPCV was approved as an affiliate of the National Peace Corps Association.

501(c)(3) Status:

On April 8, 2008 the Internal Revenue Service granted approval of our application to be exempt from Federal income tax. Donors may thus deduct contributions to FCRPCV to the extent allowable by law.
