Community Resources

We work to offer our members and friends of  RPCVs of Colorado a variety of resources, including job, apartment and other housing links, as well as organizations in our community that are looking for volunteers. We're going to be continuing to add more resources as we get requests. If you have a suggestion, please contact us.

Job Resources

Peace Corps Career Link

Peace Corps's RPCV Career Link is an  interactive jobs board designed to connect returned Peace Corps volunteers (RPCVs) with post-service career and education opportunities.

RPCV Career Link replaced Hotline, the career bulletin that provided RPCVs with job announcements, scholarships and volunteer opportunities for more than 40 years. The new online, interactive format is more flexible, enables faster response times, as well as easier access for both employers and job seekers.  The job board is also searchable by location, opportunity type and keyword.

“In today’s global job market, the skills that Peace Corps volunteers have when they return home are the skills that employers are looking for,” said Eileen Conoboy, past director of The Office of Third Goal and Returned Volunteer Services. “During service, volunteers learn a second language, technical skills and how to work across cultures. RPCV Career Link connects these uniquely qualified returned volunteers with employers so they can continue to make a difference back in the United States.”

Jobs and scholarship opportunities can be posted and viewed by visiting the RPCV Career Link website. Postings are live on the site for 30 days.

Volunteer Resources

If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, here are some of the organizations that we partner with.

9Health Fair

The 9Health Fair occurs in the fall, from October to November, and the spring, around April. The mission of the 9Health Fair is to raise health awareness and provide people with the tools they need to take responsibility for their health. This is done through free to discounted health screening services, that are too numerous to count. For a full list of all the screening options, click here: screening options.  

Volunteers roles: Medical and Non-Medical Volunteers on the day of the event--no medical experience necessary!

To find a health fair near you in need of volunteers, visit the 9Health Fair website, or visit the RPCV event page to find out our next Service Project event.

Growing Colorado Kids

Growing Colorado Kids (GCK) is a place of safety for refugee youth where their strength, knowledge, and confidence grows through hands-on learning, community service, and educational programming. By collaborating with volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, youth achieve challenging farm projects that build confidence and community. (Mission statement from website)

GCK has been featured on Colorado Public Radio, National Public Radio, Food & Wine, Colorado Gardener Magazine, and some of the youth leaders even presented at the September 2016 RPCV meetings. 

During the summer, GCK hosts youth at the farm on 3 Saturdays per month, and encourage volunteers to visit the farm. During the off-season, GCK continues to work with refugee youth, and volunteering during this time may occur during field trips with the youth. 

For more information about volunteering with Growing Colorado Kids, visit their website: http://www.growingcolorado.org/get-involved or contact Denise, Executive Director, at 303.301.4650
