Projects

The Third Goal of the Peace Corps is to educate those in America about other countries, or to "bring the world home."   At NOVA RPCV, we take that to heart when we serve our community.

 

We conduct quarterly trail cleanups in Reston

 

 

We host an annual Reston Multicultural Festival Booth

We provide information to festival participants about Peace Corps activities and about NOVA RPCV at our assigned booth

 

 

Support for Refugees in the Northern Virginia Area

On July 22, 2017 we held a joint NOVA RPCV and Falls Church Rotary Club project to engage in the official Peace Corps-Rotary Partnership and MOU enacted in 2014.  This project benefited local refugees and involved volunteers from both groups bringing needed items for Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area Refugee and Immigrant Service division. During the event we put together both Toiletry and Cleaning Welcome Kits, stuffing the Welcome Kits together.All kits will directly benefit refugees being resettled in our area.  Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area Refugee and Immigrant Services works in partnership with the US State Department to welcome and resettle refugees from around the world, including Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and West Africa.
