I live in Tempe and considering joining the Peace Corp. I was looking for some RPCVs in the area to talk to about their experiences.

I'm an RPCV and just moved to Phoenix. I'm having a hard time finding any RPCV groups in the area. I can't be the only one! In anyone has any info please email.

I'm an RPCv new to the greater Phoenix area and frustrated in not being able to find other former volunteers.
Are both RPCV groups in Tuscon and Phoenix defunct or inactive?
Please contact me.

My wife and I are RPCVs from Madagascar also new to the Phoenix area, and we would like to get together with other RPCVs. Since there doesn't seem to be a group, does anyone have an interest in starting one?

I am an RPCV (Tonga-94-97)conducting my dissertation on repatriate distress (also known as reverse culture shock or re-entry shock) among RPCVs who have returned within the past

If you have COS-ed within the past year, please consider helping me to document and better understand this under-researched but common experience. Participation involves completing an anonymous 15-minute questionnaire. I can be reached through email or phone, at, or (805)708-6355.

Thank you!

Phoenix RPCVs - there's a dinner planned for Oct 5th (Sunday) at Cafe Lalibela at University and Hardy in Tempe. One of the topics of conversation should be getting a listserv together so that we may communicate effectively with one another, organize out reach, and social events. If you are interested in taking up this endeavor with me and a few friends of mine, please contact me through ASU's directory.
