National Peace Corps Association Advocacy

Friends of Tonga works with the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) to organize meetings with our state's Congressional Delegation to urge Congressional action to support legislation that:

  • Maintains or increases funding for the Peace Corps program;
  • Protects the health and safety of currently serving volunteers;
  • Honors and supports those who have completed their Peace Corps service.

How can you get involved? 

 

       
 

 

We are an affiliate of the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA).

NPCA champions lifelong commitment to Peace Corps ideals by connecting, engaging and promoting its members and affiliate groups as they continue to make a difference in communities in the U.S. and abroad. NPCA is also dedicated to advocating for, contributing to, and supporting the betterment of the Peace Corps. Visit NPCA to learn more
