Join us in the Grand Floral Parade


Join PPCA in a 30 year tradition of representing Peace Corps to the greater Portland community on June 10, 2023!

Portland Peace Corps Association was accepted to march in the Grand Floral Parade this year! In years past, PPCA has had nearly 100+ RPCVs, friends, spouses, partners, children over the age of 14, and community members march with in the Grand Floral Parade. Let's have that kind of attendance this year! 

Members and non-members are invited to join, this is about representing where you served and your time as a PCV and be part of an amazingly fun third goal activity! 

What We Do

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.


Get to know other volunteers, network for jobs, or just come for one of our pub nights or campouts!
