Welcome to RPCVs of Gulf Coast Florida!

We are a vibrant group of returned volunteers, friends, family, and future volunteers, dedicated to the mission of supporting educational and social development.  We work with local communities to promote development within our neighborhoods, and we partner globally to strengthen sustainable growth throughout the world. Peace Corps for Life

We stand with Black Lives Matter. 

We support equality and justice. 

We condemn the violence which has been perpetrated to Black people and other races throughout the centuries. 

We honor those whose lives have been taken senselessly--George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Eric Garner, and the countless others, whom we know only by their tragic deaths.

We actively participate in antiracist actions and speech.

We hear and respect the voices of the victims.

Our signature project, the one we are currently endorsing and supporting, is Newtown Alive.  Newtown is a historically Black neighborhood in Sarasota, and Newtown Alive was created to illuminate and document its rich culture and history.  To learn more about Newtown Alive, please visit  http://www.newtownalive.org/.





What We Do

The goals of RPCVGCF are to unite returned volunteers in the area, to promote sustainable development throughout the world, and to engage in activities of equality and social justice. We currently support Africa Development Promise, and we welcome input for further causes. Please join us as we grow!


We offer opportunities to socialize with other RPCV's as well as to learn about ways we can share our experiences with others. We host periodic events, including fun and enriching social get-togethers.
