Who We Are

Portland Peace Corps Association

The Portland Peace Corps Association brings together the Peace Corps communities from the Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington region. Formerly known as the Columbia River Valley Peace Corps Association (CRPCA), the group includes returned Peace Corps volunteers of all ages as well as those actively serving in the field. We work to provide a hub to all those in the Peace Corps orbit, to serve our community, and sometimes to get together over a drink and tell stories!

To find out more about PPCA, please continue check out our mission, our board, and our official documents and reports. And of course, feel free to contact us at any time.
