Welcome to PPCA!

The Portland Peace Corps Association, or PPCA, is the northwest Oregon and southwest Washington area chapter of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. We are a diverse group of natives, transplants, old, young, all bound by having served our country as volunteers, and working together to continue promoting the Peace Corps. PPCA works to support current volunteers and serves our communities in the shared values the organization was founded on back in 1963.

Our group was formerly known as the Columbia River Valley Peace Corps Association, so perhaps you know us by that name - whatever you call us, we hope to see you in person at one of our events some day soon! This site is a hub for PPCA information, and a work in progress, so please reach out if anything needs changing or updating by emailing us  at webmaster@portlandpeacecorps.org.
