Volunteer Opportunities

Peace Corps Partnership Program
The Peace Corps Partnership Program provides a link between U.S. contributors (or Partners) and requests for project assistance from the overseas communities in which Peace Corps Volunteers serve. Through the Partnership Program, Peace Corps facilitates the active participation of Americans in the development process, promotes community action and involvement both overseas and in the United States, and fosters greater international understanding through cross-cultural exchange. 

Peace Corps Third Goal:  A Development Education Opportunity Peace Corps Week, on the first week in March, commemorates Peace Corps' anniversary. Special events on that week include classroom visits by thousands of returned Peace Corps Volunteers in schools across the country, sharing their experiences and insights with students in all grades.

NPCA Education Resources:  The "Third Goal" of the Peace Corps is to bring a global perspective back to the United States. The National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) helps educators, parents, current and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and other interested citizens find the resources, networking and support they need to bring a global perspective into classrooms and communities. By providing Educational resources, the goal is to promote students’ knowledge of, understanding of and respect for the people, cultures and nations of the world.  Resources available to you as one of our Education subscribers include a quarterly newsletter and a weekly email newsletter.

Peace Corps/Morocco Volunteer Assistance Committee (VAC) 
Now closed and funnelled through the Peace Corps Partnership Program, Peace Corps/Morocco formerly had a committee of five Peace Corps Volunteers, who assisted volunteers financially with low budget, low maintenance type projects (a partial list of past VAC projects is included).  These projects are funded by outside donations and by the selling of Peace Corps T-shirts, Sweatshirts, and cookbooks etc. to the volunteers and the community.  FOM contributed US $500 in March 1999, $500 in June 2000 and $500 in November 2001 from member dues and contributions.  These pages are maintained as a record of former support.

FOM Board of Directors and Officers
Volunteers are needed to serve on the FOM Board of Directors and to stand for nomination for officer positions such as President, Secretary and Treasurer and other officers.

  Help us find the lost volunteers
Friends of Morocco has a database with the names of almost 4000 persons, most of whom were Peace Corps volunteers in Morocco.  There are some 1500 persons with whom we have lost contact information.  Please review our lost alpha member list or our lost YOS member list and let us know if you have any contact information.  If you are proficient with electronic data searches on the WWW, you can help us locate some of these people.
