Berkeley Peace Corps Club

July 20, 2012 by Bay Nature

We hope to gather a group of people with a common interest of serving others for the well-being of the community we live in. This group’s especially beneficial for people who are planning to apply to the Peace Corps: we plan to hold Peace Corp alumni panels and presentations so we can learn about applying. It doesn’t matter if you’re not applying to the corps! The club offers to all an outlet to public service. We do community service events every weekend, as well as host Peace Corps alumni panels at every meeting. If you are dedicated to public service and cross-cultural understanding, this is the club for you! BPCC will maintain a weekly meeting every Wednesday between 7pm and 8:30pm at 210 Wheeler Hall throughout spring 2010.
