Our Mission
MPCA is a community of former and future Peace Corps volunteers and families who continue to 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 Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and those returning from abroad.
When: Saturday October 18, 2014 12:00 pm
Where: Bollywood Grill, 1038 N Jackson St
Cost: $20

The semi-annual Peace Corps Partnership Luncheon is right around the corner! This season's regional theme is East Asia/Oceana and we will be dining and the delicious Bollywood Grill. The tasty food will be accompanied by brief presentations and voting on relevant projects that currently serving Peace Corps Volunteers are working on in East Asia and Oceana. Profits raised by the event will go towards funding the project that attendees select during the voting process. 

Entry to the event includes a buffet and the donation to PC projects. RSVP today at info@milwaukeepeacecorps.org and buy your tickets in advance following the link below. We look forward to seeing you there!

2015 Calendars

We have announced the 2014 social hours! This year, we will have a few "travelling" social hours where we will choose an alternative location to have a drink and a chat with anyone who is interested in Peace Corps. 

Social hours normally take place at 7:30pm, and will be at the Oakcrest Tavern (4022 N Oakland, in Shorewood), when no other location is mentioned. They are open to anybody interested in Peace Corps and are a great way to chat about MPCA and to learn more about Peace Corps and hear individual volunteers' stories.

Here are the remaining Social Hour dates for 2014. Both of the remaining Social Hours will take place at Best Place at the Pabst Brewery Complex, 901 W Juneau Ave, Milwaukee, WI.

Thursday, October 23rd Best Place, Pabst Brewery Complex
Tuesday, November 17th* Best Place, Pabst Brewery Complex

No RSVP is required. We hope to see you there!

Camp Mariposas (Camp Butterflies) received a $500 MPCA grant to support the camp, which is based on Peace Corps' Camp GLOW.  The camp took place during the first week of March 2014 and 24 women from three different communities were able to participate. Participants attended workshops and training on leadership and empowerment, building and maintaining healthy relationships, reproductive health, education opportunities and goal-setting among others. Upon return to their communities, the young women worked together to start community clubs to further educate their communities and teach what they learned during the camp.
