Over 250 people attended NorCal’s 2014 Peace Corps Conference to enjoy presentations from volunteers who served in over a dozen countries, panel discussions on the 2012 Evacuation Mali by former Peace Corps Chief of Africa Operations, Lynn Foden, Storytelling workshops, workshops on transitioning back to life in the States and so much more. The conference was the culmination of the efforts of 41 volunteers donating more than 200 hours of their time to make this awesome event possible.

Kiss and Tell Story Jam


Our traveling Story Jam Series is back in Oakland for Valentines week with our Kiss N’ Tell where returned volunteers recount stories of lust, romance and finding love overseas. This event is free and open to all.

If you want to tell a story but don’t have any experience then join us at the Jan 25th Peace Corps Conference in Berkeley. There will be 3 hours of story telling workshops where we’ll walk you through developing a story, practicing it and adding polish.Click here for more info. If you can’t make the conference here is a great guide on story telling.

Stories need to be 10 minutes or less. If you’re interested in telling your story send us a brief synopsis of your story. Stories must be true experiences that happened to you during your Peace Corps service. We will review it and if you are selected we will contact you.
