NorCalPCA - Mentoring

Pre Peace Corps Mentoring

Nearly all Returned Volunteers will tell you that joining Peace Corps was the biggest life changing decision they have ever made. It can be filled with excitement and euphoria mingled with times of self-doubt and stress. Our returned Volunteer mentors are available to give honest advice, listen to your concerns, help you through the decision process, through the rough patches and finally, to prepare to leave for service.

Readjustment Mentoring

For returning Peace Corps Volunteers, sometimes the hardest thing about the Peace Corps is adjusting to life back home. RPCV NorCalPCA mentors can help recently returned PCVs readjust and navigate the process of coming back or simply provide a sympathetic ear.

Career Mentoring

Whether you're recently returning, considering Peace Corps, or have been returned now for some time - The member community contains a deep wealth of professional experience. We all know that Peace Corps volunteers go far and wide and do amazing things with their lives. Sign up for career mentoring and we will try to match you with an RPCV in your target career industry who can share their personal experience navigating and working in that industry with you.


NorCalPCA frequently hosts Readjustment events such as Recently Returned Potluck and Recently Returned Thanksgiving!
