It's that time of year again for the semi-annual Volunteer Send-Off! Come bid the new volunteers safe travels as they prepare to leave for their Peace Corps experience. Meet volunteers about to leave, newly returned volunteers, and those who have been back for a while. Have fun swapping stories or helping soothe parents' concerns for their children.
The Volunteer Send-Off is a wonderful venue for Peace Corps applicants and those interested to hear stories from RPCVs, and to learn more about the application process.
Light breakfast foods will be served.
The very last social hour of 2014 will take place on Tuesday, November 18th. Social hours are open to anyone who is interested in Peace Corps. They are a great way to chat about MPCA and to learn more about Peace Corps and hear individual volunteers' stories.
The social hour will take place at Best Place at the Pabst Brewery Complex, 901 W Juneau Ave, Milwaukee, WI.
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 email@example.com and buy your tickets in advance following the link below. We look forward to seeing 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.
