RPCV Mentoring Program
The goal of this free program is to offer practical and emotional support from those who have “been there” to newly-returned RPCVs re-adjusting to life in the US. Participants are asked to make a minimum 4-month commitment to the program, with a minimum of 3 contacts, which can be via phone, e-mail, or in-person, or any combination of these. Community information resources, details on job and education opportunities, tips on making a mentoring relationship work, and much more, will be offered to both mentors and mentees. If you’d like to offer to help a new RPCV through “reverse culture shock,” or if you would like the help of a someone who has experienced this phase of life, please visit the RPCV Mentoring Program website. RPCVs from all eras are needed to serve as mentors.
