Global Allies Program: Partners Ending Poverty with RESULTS (or GAP) aims to train and engage Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) in advocacy that will have impact, and to connect RPCVs to like-minded and experienced advocates in the RESULTS grassroots network. We’d also like to work with RPCVs to make connections to local diaspora communities to strengthen our influence on issues that matter to their home countries. RESULTS will help you improve your advocacy skills, support the second and third goals of the Peace Corps, and create a connection with people from other countries here in the U.S.
RESULTS, through GAP, is an official affiliate group of the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA). NPCA is the nonprofit alumni network at the center of a vibrant community of over 230,000 people who share the Peace Corps experience. NPCA champions lifelong commitment to Peace Corps ideals by connecting, engaging, and promoting its members and affiliate groups as they continue to make a difference in communities in the U.S. and abroad. NPCA is also dedicated to advocating for, contributing to, and supporting the betterment of the Peace Corps. Visit NPCA’s website to learn more: www.peacecorpsconnect.org.
If you are RPCV passionate about the country that you’ve served in and the work you’ve done as a Peace Corps Volunteer in global health, education, and/or economic development, the Global Allies Program: Partners Ending Poverty with RESULTS (GAP for short) will provide you the advocacy skills and connections to continue to make a difference. Learn more by visiting: https://www.peacecorpsconnect.org/companies/global-allies-program-partners-ending-poverty-with-results. If you are a RESULTS volunteer advocate interested in connecting with RPCVs in your community, contact Karyne Bury at [email protected].
Together Women Rise is a powerful community of women and allies dedicated to achieving global gender equality. With nearly 500 local chapters across the U.S., members learn about and advocate for gender equality issues, give grants to organizations that empower women and girls in low-income countries, and build community to forge meaningful connections that increase our strength and collective impact.
Launched in February 2020, the Together Women Rise national advocacy chapter with RESULTS hosts monthly webinars to develop advocacy skills, inform members on global poverty campaigns, and provide support for members to take action on critical issues affecting women and girls all over the world. Together Women Rise members, along with RESULTS advocates, join together to amplify advocacy efforts and make an impact on global health, education, gender equity, and economic development, closing the gender gap.

A RESULTS Action Network is a loosely organized pool of community-based advocates and supporters connected to a RESULTS group. Action Network members may not typically participate in regular group activities and meetings, but they take actions to support the group’s advocacy and organizing efforts and may participate in fundraising efforts.
There is no magic formula to creating a Community Action Network, but a great first start is to figure out how you will contact and keep track of your network even before you find people to join it. Also, determine how often you will communicate. If someone prefers only to be contacted for particularly important actions or actions that relate to your local RESULTS group, participating in your local Community Action Network could be perfect for them.
Then be strategic. If the right local opportunities to reach out haven’t surfaced for your network in a few weeks, consider sending a link to a powerful article, an invitation to have coffee, or a thank you for being willing to stand at the ready. This allows people to also give you feedback, contact detail updates, etc.
