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 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 Social Hour dates for 2014:
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. For more information and updates, please visit facebook.com/campmariposas.
Happy New Year! Below you will find the newly-announced dates of the upcoming year. We will be having "wandering" social hours this year, so keep a look out for those locations. Keep checking in, because more precice times and locations will be announced. If there are any changes to be made, they will happen here as well.
