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>>

Grants Proposals due August 31, 2014

Last Update: 7/11/2014 12:35 PM

The Grants Program provides an opportunity for NorCal members to support a project in your country of service or a worthy project you know about. We want to hear from you!

NorCal RPCV Debra Pritchard, currently in Palawan, Philippines, received $960
for recreation equipment for the Palawan Special Olympics in 2013.

Applications are accepted from projects that meet criteria posted on the NorCal website. These projects require community involvement in the form of labor, funds or in-kind materials and equipment. We especially favor proposals from NorCal members and current PC Volunteers from Northern California. We also consider Peace Corps Partnership Projects from California PCVs.

Our Grants Program tries to vary the kind of projects and their geographic location, in keeping with the spirit of Peace Corps and the diversity of our members. Over the years we have supported local libraries, literacy efforts, latrine construction, environmental clean-up, health clinic equipment, school materials, youth recreation, and water collection efforts, to name a few.

Funding for Grants comes from fundraisers held during the year and direct donations from NorCal members and friends. A typical grant is $500-2,000 and we usually name 2-4 total grants each year.

Details about the Grants Program and the application process can be found on the NorCal website. Contact Marilyn Hyde, Grants Chair, at marhyde@cruzio.com for more information.
