Boston Area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers

Peace Corps Week, Restaurant Week | A Huge Success!


Thanks to all those who participated in our annual Peace Corps Week/Restaurant Week celebration. We ended up bringing together over 140 Boston Area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, an unprecedented turnout! There is no question about what brings us together – a chance to meet other RPCVs and great food.                                                                                                                    >>survey here

We had a broad range of restaurants in new locations this year. Many of the restaurants were recommendations from Returned Volunteers and we had a great response from members who were willing to help out and host. We also helped local restaurant owners, many of whom were already friends of the Peace Corps community and were more than welcoming. It was certainly a wonderful week and it was great to see so many people together celebrating and commemorating one of the toughest jobs we have ever had! It also helps us to remember that we are a community and our presence in and around Boston is making a difference in everything we do.

Thanks for making Peace Corps Week such a huge success!
