Chicago Area Peace Corps Association

The Chicago Area Peace Corps Association (CAPCA)

The Chicago Area Peace Corps Association (CAPCA) brings together more than 400 returned Peace Corps Volunteers who live and work in the Chicago area. Organized in 1979 and incorporated in 1991 as a non-profit organization, CAPCA is affiliated with the Washington, D.C. based National Peace Corps Association.

CAPCA ‘s primary objective is to fulfill, in the Chicago area, the mission of the National Peace Corps Association: Continue to work for world peace, understanding, and well-being, with an emphasis on bringing the world back home. The group works for this objective by funding Peace Corps Partnership projects, supporting youth programs that offer leadership and cross-cultural experiences, and providing speakers to organizations interested in the Peace Corps and international development. In addition, CAPCA coordinates a variety of volunteer projects that benefit local community service agencies.
