Community Resources

We work to offer our members and friends of  RPCVs of Colorado a variety of resources, including job, apartment and other housing links, as well as organizations in our community that are looking for volunteers. We're going to be continuing to add more resources as we get requests. If you have a suggestion, please contact us.

Job Resources

Peace Corps Career Link

Peace Corps's RPCV Career Link is an  interactive jobs board designed to connect returned Peace Corps volunteers (RPCVs) with post-service career and education opportunities.

RPCV Career Link replaced Hotline, the career bulletin that provided RPCVs with job announcements, scholarships and volunteer opportunities for more than 40 years. The new online, interactive format is more flexible, enables faster response times, as well as easier access for both employers and job seekers.  The job board is also searchable by location, opportunity type and keyword.

“In today’s global job market, the skills that Peace Corps volunteers have when they return home are the skills that employers are looking for,” said Eileen Conoboy, past director of The Office of Third Goal and Returned Volunteer Services. “During service, volunteers learn a second language, technical skills and how to work across cultures. RPCV Career Link connects these uniquely qualified returned volunteers with employers so they can continue to make a difference back in the United States.”

Jobs and scholarship opportunities can be posted and viewed by visiting the RPCV Career Link website. Postings are live on the site for 30 days.

Career Training

"CNA Classes Near Me" helps those interested in becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) find training programs. Many of these programs are free as they are funded by the U.S. Department of Labor or state equivalent agencies. Our site has state by state pages that list out all training locations in a given state as well as their contact information. 

"CNA Free Training" provides free training materials for those preparing to take the CNA exam, which is a requirement in order to become a licensed CNA. We have free practice tests for each section of the CNA exam, as well as supplemental training materials that can be used while taking CNA classes – all of which are free.

Here are some resources to help you in your search if you are moving here to Colorado.

Volunteer Resources

If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, here are some of the organizations that we partner with.

9Health Fair

The 9Health Fair occurs in the fall, from October to November, and the spring, around April. The mission of the 9Health Fair is to raise health awareness and provide people with the tools they need to take responsibility for their health. This is done through free to discounted health screening services, that are too numerous to count. For a full list of all the screening options, click here: screening options.  

Volunteers roles: Medical and Non-Medical Volunteers on the day of the event--no medical experience necessary!

To find a health fair near you in need of volunteers, visit the 9Health Fair website, or visit the RPCV event page to find out our next Service Project event.

For Refuge and Immigrant volunteer

Casa de Paz

Casa de Paz began in 2012 as a small, one-bedroom apartment offering hospitality to families separated by immigrant detention. Our work has always been to host families whose loved ones are being detained and individuals who have been recently released. In 2017 we moved into a larger, rented house with more space so that we would not have to turn people away.

Today, Casa de Paz provides visits, shelter, meals, transportation and emotional support. Detention is a difficult time that tears families apart and creates a financial burden, so we have always offered our services free of cost.

Detention is a difficult time that tears families apart and creates a financial burden, so we have always offered our services free of cost. Since we first opened our doors we’ve hosted 3,1112 immigrants from seventy seventy countries and the need only continues to grow.

Casa de Paz is the only organization in Colorado offering shelter to released immigrants and their families. If we don’t do this, we don’t know of anyone else who will. Casa de Paz is a promise - a promise that as long as detention centers keep families apart, there will also be a welcoming home with our doors wide open.
