Returned Peace Corps        Volunteers of Hawai'i

   Connecting RPCVs living in Hawai'i.

Aloha e komo mai!

The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Hawai'i (RPCVHI) is a member organization of the National Peace Corps Association. We actively try to connect with RPCVs living in Hawai'i through our website, ongoing activities, and opportunities to engage in projects that align with Peace Corps' Third Goal - to bring the world home. We support the Dept. of Land and Natural Resources' efforts to clean the Kawainui Marsh on O'ahu's Windward side with monthly volunteer time; we support the statewide outreach of Hawai'i Public Radio by answering phones at the semi-annual pledge drives; and we join other organizations for beach clean-ups, fundraising walks, and food drives.

We connect and reconnect with RPCVs on O'ahu at monthly "Pau Hana," Annual August BBQ / Picnic at Magic Island, and at the Holiday Fundraiser on the first Sunday of December.

We also collaborate with the Peace Corps representative at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa to inform those interested in serving in the Peace Corps. Read more about us

    RPCVHI will participate in the parade and will have a booth at the Kapiolani Park and we are inviting you all to come march with us.

    We are encouraging ALL RPCVs, their families, friends, and all supporters of what Peace Corps and Martin Luther King stand for to march in the parade and participate in the unity rally celebration. We need to represent now more than ever. 

    The parade begins at Magic Island with the formation of organizations at 7:30 a.m., then moves out at 9:00 a.m., traveling on Kalakaua Avenue through Waikiki to Kapiolani Park. It is culminated with a unity rally celebration, which includes food, community booths, and camaraderie.

    Start planning ahead! RPCVs who would like to march in the parade are encouraged to wear a Peace Corps shirt OR a clothing representing their country of service. RPCVs can also carry a small flag from their country of service. Our booth in Kapiolani Park will have Peace Corps information PLUS information from RPCVs willing to display photos and objects from their country of service. 

    More information about the parade and our booth will come in late December.

    Aloha Fellow RPCV's in Hawaii,

    The film project that began six years ago in Hilo after the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Peace Corps in 2011 is ready for viewing.

    The film shows Peace Corps training scenes on Hawaiʻi Island, in Hilo and Waipio Valley in particular.

    The first showing will be at the Mookini Library at UH Hilo on Saturday, December 3, 2016, from 9:30 to 11:00 AM.

    Former Peace Corps staff members, Peace Corps volunteers and anyone who may have been involved with the Peace Corps training on Hawaiʻi Island between 1962 and 1971 is invited to attend. The public is also welcome.

    If you have any questions, please contact Bill Sakovich at 895-7311 or at

    Many thanks for the statewide support Returned PCVs gave to Hawaii Public Radio yesterday, October 19th, when we staffed the phones at the semi-annual fundraiser!! We talked with folks we didn't know were here in Hawaii, and thanked them for their support. We talked with long time friends. We appreciated all the funds pledged and look forward to doing this again in April!

    - Rosemary Casey, coordinator of the HPR outreach and former RPCVHI President.
