Membership Benefits

Mail Notices

Occasional postcards bring last minute details of the group's volunteer and social events.

Social Gatherings

Potluck and restaurant dinners, picnics, camping trips, hiking trips, monthly breakfasts, monthly pub nights, etc. Great opportunities to get together with former PCVs. Newly returned volunteers can meet the "locals", parents and families of current PCVs can discuss Peace Corps life with people who understand what you're talking about, the "locals" (RPCVs) exchange ideas, news, opinions, ..., and love to talk to recent PCVs, PCV families, and those thinking of joining the Peace Corps.

Volunteer Activities

Members have the opportunity to volunteer in a variety of activities throughout the year. Information on meeting places, work assignments, what to bring, etc., are all taken care of for you. Alternatively, if you would like to organize a volunteer activity, Sac Valley RPCVs can help publicize the activity and may be able to help organize a group of volunteers. Volunteer opportunities have included Yuba County flood relief, KVIE/KXJZ phone banks (public television/radio), Christmas in April (extensive home repairs for needy), Human Race (5K fundraising walk), Great American River Cleanup (trash collection along river parkway) and Christmas Promise (wrapping gifts for needy).

Third Goal Activities: Bringing the World Back Home

Each year, Sac Valley RPCVs roll out the very popular International Taxi at community events. [Kids get a ticket to travel anywhere in the world, guided by their RPCV hosts.] RPCVs also visit schools as part of the national Peace Corps Day (formerly called World Wise Schools Day). Willing members can be contacted to meet with newly accepted PCVs who may be going to your country of service. Many of the dinners include speakers representing organization active in Peace Corps countries.

Member Input

Each year members elect a board of directors, submit requests for project funding, submit items for publication in our newsletter, and participate in member surveys to help define activities for the organization.
