2013 was a great year for RPCV Outreach! We had Returned Volunteers speak at events across the state from Girl Scout World Thinking Day events to College recruitment fairs to school cultural fairs. Over 30 volunteers shared their experiences with groups of all ages. Thank you to everyone who responded to a request for speakers and for your enthusiasm! Please send any photos or descriptions of your third goal experience to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can share on our website!
As your Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator, I am working to bring you more opportunities for outreach events. But why wait? Sign up for World Wise Schools to share your Peace Corps experiences with American classrooms and student groups. WWS is a great way to fulfill the Third Goal of Peace Corps! World Wise Schools also has many classroom resources and ideas for presentations for all age levels right on their website. Don’t forget to register your Third Goal activity and receive a free Third Goal kit containing stickers, bookmarks, and other great items to hand out at your speaking event!
If you are interested in speaking at an event but are unsure of where to start, check out this great resource with helpful tips for giving a presentation on your Peace Corps experience: Giving Presentations is Easier than you Think! Also, I will be giving a brief presentation on ways to enrich your Third Goal presentations at our annual meeting on March 15th so don’t miss it!
Yours in service,
