Beyond Borders
Mar 3 Storytelling Workshop


We all have stories to tell. That’s the Third Goal of Peace Corps, to share with people back home the experiences from our service overseas.  Beyond Borders Storytelling is hosting a storytelling workshop to help people turn those experiences into engaging stories.  The workshop is open to anyone who has a story with an international twist,  not just Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.

This workshop is perfect for those wanting to go that next step and perform before a live audience at the Story Jam in April.
Workshop is FREE to all. Pizza will be provided.  Details and RSVP Info Here>>

RPCV Movie: Back to Yarasquin

8/1/13 Thu (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)

The Way Back to Yarasquin is a short documentary about my wife's efforts to import coffee from her home town in Honduras, the town where I was a Peace Corps volunteer. See attached link for a description of the movie, a trailer of the movie, and ticket information. http://www.yarasquinthemovie.com/

This has been a really cool project for our family and it has brought back all the great memories of my own Peace Corps days. I think the movie will take other RPCVs back to their days in the Peace Corps and maybe inspire a few to start their own project from the States.
