Outreach

New Jersey RPCVs are fantastic at the Third Goal of the Peace Corps – bringing the world back home. Through presentations at universities, multicultural fairs and scouting, volunteers continue to share their wealth of experience with the Garden State community.

Want to participate in more Third Goal Activities?
Sign up with World Wise Schools (WWS) to share your Peace Corps experiences with American classrooms. WWS is a great way to fulfill the Third Goal of Peace Corps! In order to receive emails from World Wise Schools to participate in speaking events near you, sign up for Speakers Match. Once you enroll you will receive requests from schools and other organizations that have requested a RPCV speaker for an event or classroom near you. World Wise Schools also has many classroom resources and ideas for presentations for all age levels.
Also, make sure you 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 events!
