PAPCA: Philadelphia Area Peace Corps Association


Regular Events


​PAPCA regularly hosts a variety of events. We would love to see you! If you don't already subscribe to our newsletter, please subscribe today so you know what's coming up.

  • Second Saturday Suppers: ​We meet at a Philly-area restaurant for a casual dinner and great conversation. PAPCA members are always welcome to host one of the monthly suppers; this is a great way to introduce other local RPCVs to the food of your host country. Email us if you'd like to learn more about hosting a dinner.
  • Fourth Thursday Happy Hours: Every fourth Thursday of the month, we meet up for a post-work happy hour at about 6PM. We rotate our happy hours around a core group of bars, and hope you'll swing by one fourth Thursday on your way home from work.
  • Quarterly Bookclub: ​Four times a year we meet up in the city to discuss books by international authors. If you're interested in bookclub, sign up here. If you'd like to get a sense for the types of books we read, we have a complete list of our past book selections.
  • Holiday Potluck: Every November or December, PAPCA members prepare a dish from their host country for our annual potluck.
  • Annual Picnic: Every summer we host a picnic. PAPCA provides meat and vegetarian options for grilling, and PAPCA members bring side dishes from their host countries. Many folks bring their kids and partners, and it's a great time!

We'll email you about these events as well as other events; in addition to our regular events we also gather for bike rides, hikes, and many other activities in the Philly area.
