Global Allies Program: Partners Ending Poverty with RESULTS
About Global Allies Program: Partners Ending Poverty with RESULTS
RPCVs are passionate about the countries of service and their work as volunteers; however, it is often challenging to find meaningful ways for RPCVs to continue to impact the issues they committed themselves to as volunteers.
Advocating on country- and community-owned approaches to global health, education, and other development issues affecting their country of service, Global Allies Program: Partners Ending Poverty with RESULTS (or GAP) advocates will bring long-term commitment to Peace Corps ideals. This effort would also support the second and third goals of the Peace Corps and create a connection with people from other countries here in the United States.
