The Kansas City Area Peace Corps Association works with the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) to advocate on behalf of future, current and returned Peace Corps Volunteers. We organize meetings with Kansas and Missouri's Congressional Delegations to urge Congressional action to support legislation that:

  • Maintains or increases funding for the Peace Corps program
  • Protects the health and safety of currently serving volunteers
  • Honors and supports those who have completed their Peace Corps service
