Beyond Borders
Mar 3 Storytelling Workshop

We all have stories to tell. That’s the Third Goal of Peace Corps, to share with people back home the experiences from our service overseas.  Beyond Borders Storytelling is hosting a storytelling workshop to help people turn those experiences into engaging stories.  The workshop is open to anyone who has a story with an international twist,  not just Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.

This workshop is perfect for those wanting to go that next step and perform before a live audience at the Story Jam in April.
Workshop is FREE to all. Pizza will be provided.  Details and RSVP Info Here>>

Learn more about the NorCalPCA Mentoring Program:
The NorCalPCA Mentoring Program provides valuable information and support to RPCVs. Recent RPCV mentees receive a welcome and helpful support through the initial readjustment, including receiving resources for jobs, graduate education, and often a new community. RPCV mentors provide a sounding board for advice, supply key networking contacts, review resumes and assist with career planning, and help mentees with the transition home from serving abroad to serving at home. Mentors provide connections to the Northern California RPCV community, including Third Goal activities. In addition, when RPCVs are considering possible shifts in their career direction, mentors can be identified to provide specific information from their own related experience.

Mentors and mentees sign up at The NorCal Mentorship Coordinators review profiles and contact mentees and mentors to explore and develop matches.
