Gulf Coast Council of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers

Welcome to the RPCV's of Houston Website

We are the home of the Houston Area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Our group started in 1985 and has been going strong for 30 years.


June Reconnect was exceptional:  We had 20 RPCV's and friends meet at a quaint empanada restaurant were we ate and chatted until after 10:30.  It was wondeful to have a mix of RPCVs from the first group to Colombia to recently returned volunteers and many in between.
