What We Bring to the Table
National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) represents a community of more than 250,000 Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs), among them are more than 7,300 Volunteers who were recently evacuated from their posts and brought home because of the pandemic.
A team of NPCA contact tracers has already been deployed in Washington State with the Seattle and King County Department of Health. These tracers are conducting interviews with individuals who were potentially exposed to COVID-19, offering them referrals to services such as testing and community support resources.

- Experience working with underserved communities and overcoming challenges in order to get the job done—some specifically as public health and community development Volunteers.
- Proven ability to work with minimal resources and supervision to accomplish tasks in intercultural environments.
