Our Mission
MPCA is a community of former, current and future Peace Corps Volunteers and families who promote Peace Corps ideals through cultural education and the support of both local and international development organizations. It also provides social activities and emotional support for the MPCA community.

When: Saturday July 18, 2015 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Where: Lake Park, 3233 E Kenwood Blvd, Milwaukee, lot #1
Cost: $5 MPCA members, $7 non-members

The MPCA Summer Picnic is one of our best-attended (and most delicious) annual events. With the greenery of Lake Park as our background, a vast variety of foods from different nations is served and RPCVs are able to connect about their Peace Corps experiences, nominees are able to ask questions and family and friends can socialize.

We ask each party to bring a large dish to share and to suggest any games or activities. Cost TBD.

Where: Casablanca (728 E Brady St)
Cost: $20

The Spring Peace Corps Partnership Luncheon went off without a hitch! It was a well-attended event in a beautiful, cozy restaurant on a cold and rainy day. Attendees helped MPCA raise $250 for a Reducing Illness project in Moldova and $250 each to Nepal and Vanuatu for reconstruction and relief efforts following their natural disasters. Thank you all for your kind contributions! Check out the original posting below and the photos from the event.

The semi-annual Peace Corps Partnership Luncheon is here! This season's regional theme is Eastern Europe/Central Asia. Join us at Casablanca on Brady St to eat some delicious Middle Eastern fare as we discuss the projects of PCVs in the region and vote towards which project we would like to fund.

The $20 cost is for the buffet as well as for the donation. Profits raised by the event will go towards funding the project that attendees select during the voting process. RSVP today at info@milwaukeepeacecorps.org and buy your tickets in advance following the link below. We look forward to seeing you there!

Options

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.
