About the organization

The Northern Alaska Peace Corps Friends is composed of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs), and other people interested in the Peace Corps, that now live in Alaska (north of Anchorage).  We usually meet once a month at either a member's house or a restaurant or church in Fairbanks.  We sometimes have a guest speaker give a slide show about their Peace Corps experience, or experience working or traveling in another country.  The Northern Alaska Peace Corps Friends is affiliated with the National Peace Corps Association.
