Northern Ohio Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Association

NORVA connects Northeast Ohio RPCV's with each other and our community.

Celebrating a Year Full of Service Saturdays

Our first Service Saturday was held on January 26, 2013. We are very proud to have provided English language tutoring, American cultural discussion, conversation and companionship to many beneficiaries from Bhutan, Nepal, Somalia, Iraq, North and South Sudan, and others. We are so pleased to have the opportunity to continue developing relationships with the refugee population of Cleveland. In the past year, volunteers have helped refugees with basic English skills, accessing community services like public transportation and library cards and navigating job applications. RPCVs are in a unique position to help because we know what it's like to be new in a country, not know the language and somehow have to manage anyway. We hope to see more volunteers engaging in the community in this way. Your next opportunity is on January 25!
