Our Mission

It also provides social activities and emotional support for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, those returning from abroad, and the MPCA community.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the annual holiday potluck! This year's event included a brief annual general meeting before we broke in to the delicious fare. MPCA thanks you for your membership, which is primarily used to fund our grant-making activities.

Thank you to everyone who came yesterday and congratulations to Allegra and her prize-winning Senegalese mafé. Thank you to former board member Meghan Jones for securing the beautiful Urban Ecology Center and thank you to Lakefront Brewery for their donations!

It's a new twist on an old event. Join us for the most diverse and delicious potluck in Milwaukee!

This year's potluck will include our Annual General Meeting so that you, our cherished members, can get a quick overview of our activities and other work. Following the brief meeting, the potluck will begin. The meeting will be from 6:00-6:30 and the potluck from 6:30pm. Everyone is invited to the meeting and all members are invited to cast ballots on any votes.

We invite RPCVs to bring dishes from their countries of service--or any favorite dish to bring--while family and friends of volunteers conjure up more foods.
Those interested in and supportive of Peace Corps add even more options to this luscious feast.

The Urban Ecology Center at Menomonee Valley is hosting the event.

The MPCA has two ways of keeping in touch with members via e-mail:

  • E-mailing List: Anyone can join our e-mail list to receive e-mails about official MPCA events and programs. Only the MPCA can send messages to people on this list, and it will only be used for official news and events.
  • Listserv: Anyone can also join our moderated listserv. Any listserv member can post to this list, and it's great for promoting cultural events, job or volunteer opportunities, or any Peace Corps-related news. The key difference from our e-mailing list is that anyone can post to it.
You can also like us on Facebook to stay informed about upcoming events and to engage and connect with other members of the Milwaukee-area Peace Corps community.
