RPCV Friends of Azerbaijan

Just before the end of my service, I submitted a request to the National Peace Corps Association to form a returned peace corps volunteer group for volunteers who served in Azerbaijan.  It took a few months to get a reply, but the NPCA approved our request and will be giving us official recognition as an RPCV group!  This is great, but also a bit frustrating as well... in true Azerbaijani fashion, the volunteers who served there tend to procrastinate (you know it's true!)  So the burden of creating materials, events and finding information for the group is currently resting primarily on my shoulders.

For now, we have a Facebook group, as well as an email address ( and a quarterly newsletter written by yours truly.  It isn't much, but it's a start. So if you are an RPCV from Azerbaijan, please let other members of your group know the news.  It's my goal to keep my blog going as the online publication forum for our quarterly newsletter and RPCV information.  I can't see just deleting it, and want to continue to reach out to those who served.  If you are interested in helping with the quarterly newsletter, have ideas for the group, or comments regarding the Friends of Azerbaijan RPCV group, please contact me at the email address mentioned above.

  1. Just let me know what I can do. I bet my counterpart would write fun Azerbaijani word games to help people keep up their language skills.
