NORVA seeks to connect Northeast Ohio RPCV's with each other and our community. We do this by organizing members for volunteer events in Northeast Ohio, where our unique skills can benefit the community. We also host dinners and happy hours at local ethnic restaurants where volunteers can meet. We assist with Peace Corps recruitment events.
