 NPCA Brings Together Currently Serving and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers

Are you passionate about the Peace Corps? Are you willing to share take action to increase Peace Corps’ budget, improve medical support to volunteers, and expand the resources available to Volunteers?

 

| Issues We Support

Increasing Peace Corps Annual Budget

It's time for Congress to give Peace Corps a raise in 2020 after five years of fiscal stagnation with a budget of $410 million.

Improving Health Care & Safety for Volunteers

Although Peace Corps has worked to improve the quality of care provided to Volunteers in the field, we still have work to do.  

Increasing Volunteer Benefits

Together we can enhance Volunteer benefits and equip Peace Corps alumni to make an impact at home as well as abroad.
