Members of the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) of New Jersey recently met over dinner and drinks with National Peace Corps Association President, Glenn Blumhorst in New Brunswick. The meeting was also attended by senior professionals from Rutgers Centers for Global Advancement &International Affairs headed by Director, Urmi Otiv and Associate Director of Student Services, Mohini Mukherjee. Otiv outlined to Blumhorst and the group how Rutgers is boldly paving the way for more international cultural exchanges that fit in with the overall mission of the Peace Corps.
Rutgers University and the Peace Corps have had a long affiliation, since one of the first Peace Corps volunteer groups did their pre-service training there. The global initiatives at Rutgers will benefit both the international students and faculty, in providing personal connections like the ones so valued among Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
On October 25th, 2014 at the Babur Garden Restaurant in Ocean, 12 RPCVs and their families met to share wonderful Afghan food and their stories about their Peace Corps experience. The highlight of the lunch was a presentation by RPCV Len Oppenheim who, together with the members of his group, created a 20 minute slideshow compilation of their Peace Corps pictures taken during service. Beautiful host country music and voiceovers from the group members accompanied the presentation, and traditional Afghan vegetable dumplings and eggplant dishes were served.
