RPCVHI - Who Are We?

Annual Picnic June 2023


The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Hawai'i  (RPCVHI) connects  RPCVs living in Hawai'i through our website, ongoing activities, and Facebook page.  We offer several opportunities to socialize and also offer local activities that align with Peace Corps' Third Goal- to bring the world home.  

Our annual events incude:  an annual business meeting during Peace Corps week, an  annual picnic at Magic Island, monthy pau hanas (happy hours)  and currently an annual Oktoberfest fundraiser, the main support for our Aloha Grants and Aloha Care packages. 

Our fundraising efforts, the annual Oktoberfest fundraiser and RPCV International Calendar Sales, fund our Aloha Grants and Aloha Care packages which support currently serving PC Volunteers from the state of Hawai'i.

In past years, we have supported the Dept. of Land and Natural Resources' efforts to clean and improve native plant species at  the Kawainui Marsh on Oahu's Windward side.  We join with local organizations for beach cleanups during Earth Day events April and participate in the annual Martin Luther King Day of National Service.

The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Hawai'i (RPCVHI) is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, a domestic registered domestic non-profit organization with the State of Hawai'i, and an affiliate member organization of the National Peace Corps Association.
