Peace Corps and Rotary have a partnership agreement that started in 2015.  The agreement was inspired by a group of RPCV Rotarians in Rotary District 5450.  The heart of the agreement is that Peace Corps and Rotary have almost identical focuses. 

Partnering for Peace is committed to developing that partnership agreement at the grass root level.  We are working to develop Rotary - Peace Corps Alliance committees around the U.S. by suppling the tools needed for districts and clubs to connect with current Peace Corps Volunteers (PCV) and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) to improve international projects and to support projects inspired by PCVs.  We are also working to connect RPCVs with Rotary clubs to give them the opportunity to continue their international service though Rotary.

Our Goals

Partnering for Peace seeks to demonstrate the benefits of such formal alliances between Rotary International and various countries’ international volunteer service agencies by showing what can be done just at the District level.The group facilitates professional connections between Rotarians and members of the Peace Corps community through ongoing networking, technical support and fellowship. It seeks to implement this mission through a variety of efforts:

  1. An action program within the District which identifies the International projects of the various Rotary Clubs in this District.
  2. Identification of Peace Corps volunteers within the Countries where the Rotary projects are being conducted.
  3. Identification of Rotary Clubs in the countries where the Peace Corps operates.
  4. Connecting the in-country Rotary Club, the in-District Rotary Club and the in-country Peace Corps Volunteer.
  5. Identifying returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) who served in the county where the District or a Club is conducting a project, and connecting the RPCVs with the local Rotary Club to give the club benefit of the RPCVs’ experience and potentially have the RPCV help the local club.
  6. Participating in 
  7. networking activities with out-bound PCVs, RPCVs, and their families in order to explain what Rotary can do for them in terms of serving mutual humanitarian goals.
  8. Achieving a formal agreement between the US Peace Corps and Rotary International, and eventually between international volunteer service agencies of other countries. This is a long term goal which seeks an ongoing interaction between Rotary and Peace Corps, and such other organizations.
