The outpouring of support from the Peace Corps community to help evacuees reintegrate has been inspiring. From the many resources available from the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) to several RPCV communities forming online, our community has shown that we are here to help each other and that we are stronger together. Thank you to everyone who has offered their assistance.
Several evacuees have reached out to RPCV-NJ to request resume reviews, asking for volunteer recommendations, looking for networking connections in specific areas, and asking how to become involved with our Chapter. Through the work of our Outreach Committee and Board of Directors, we have facilitated connections between evacuees and RPCVs throughout the state and followed up on all requests.
If you are an evacuee who is looking for career connections, resume review, location-specific opportunities, or similar, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We also encourage you to reach out directly to the resources provided on our Assistance to Peace Corps Evacuees page, join the NPCA and select RPCV-NJ as your affiliate chapter, and get involved with RPCV-NJ.
