Now RPCVs have a great new social networking service! The Peace Corps community's new social networking site can be accessed at ConnectedPeaceCorps. Sign up, connect, and join Friends of the OCPCA in the new online community - the site has over 21,000 total members to-date.
Also, the National Peace Corps Association has launched Peace Corps Connect. This new website, of which the social network is a part, features a wealth of information on countries, people, events, congressional initiatives, and many additional areas affecting the Peace Corps Community.
