About Us

Cincinnati Area Return Volunteers (CARV) is a networking group of Peace Corps alums with Greater Cincinnati ties. We have been filling this role for several decades and have a member list of approximately 250 people representing a broad array of timelines and experiences in the many countries where the Peace Corps has been involved. We organize a variety of social gatherings throughout the year and communicate updates from a variety of initiatives related to the Peace Corps and the special efforts our members make to better their community here and abroad. We are an affiliate group of the National Peace Corps Association and maintain good relationships with neighboring affiliate groups such as the Southern Ohio Returned Volunteers Organization (SORVO) and the Kentucky Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. We welcome your input and participation.
