National Peace Corps Association > Advocacy
NPCA and its supporters advocate on issues of importance to the Peace Corps community, including an independent and robust Peace Corps, and policies that respect, honor and support the Peace Corps community.
We serve to convey the voice of the Peace Corps community and ensure that the Peace Corps remains true to its founding vision and mission.
We also seek to add the experienced voices of returned Peace Corps Volunteers to other issues of global concern.
