Global House Party to celebrate Peace Corps

Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Wisconsin logoThe Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Wisconsin-Madison and the Peace Corps Campus Recruiting Office at the University of Wisconsin–Madison are hosting a Global House Party to celebrate the anniversary of congressional action to create the Peace Corps, share experiences and encourage future generations to carry on the strong Peace Corps tradition at UW–Madison and across Wisconsin.

The Global House Party will be held Monday, September 24, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the University Club, 803 State St., Madison. Food and drink will be served.

The program will include brief remarks about global initiatives and the sharing of Peace Corps experiences. The event is open to the public and free to UW students. It offers those interested in the Peace Corps an opportunity to hear directly from a variety of returnees.

The event also aims to help support the “Find the 250K” campaign—a National Peace Corps Association to reconnect with all volunteers and staff who have served since the Peace Corps’ inception, and to recruit future volunteers.

An entry fee of $10 (free for UW students ) includes hor d’oeuvres and a non-alcoholic beverage ticket. A cash bar will also be available.
