Support RPCVCO and See the Nuggets

Displaying

The RPCVs of Colorado is teaming up with the Denver Nuggets for a new and exciting fundraising event! Come watch the Nuggets take on the Celtics and hang out with your fellow RPCVs. The tickets are less than face value, there are three different seating areas to pick from, and $6 from each ticket sold goes to supporting RPCVCO.

This event is not just for RPCVs, so share the link and invite your friends and family, too!  

Click here to find out more about the event, including the pre-game happy hour and how to buy tickets.

If this event is popular, we'll look for similar opportunities with some of the other local sports teams. We hope to see you there!

We've been promoting a Peace Corps / Rotary partnership and so has the National Peace Corps Association!  

Check out this recent article from the NPCA and respond if you're an RPCV and a Rotatian: http://www.peacecorpsconnect.org/articles/peace-corps-and-rotary-a-match-made-in-heaven

Annually, the U.S. Peace Corps ranks the cities and state for the number of volunteers. In the recently released annual ranking for 2016, Colorado is featured twice in terms of volunteers per capita (per 100,000 residents):

  • Colorado ranked 8th for the number of volunteers per capita
  • Boulder ranked 6th for the number of volunteers per capita for a metropolitan area.

Congratulations to the Peace Corps Recruiters who continue to help recruit Peace Corps Volunteers and who ensure Colorado consistently ranks in the top ten.

More information about this annual ranking can be found here.
