AMIGOS DE BOLIVIA Y PERÚ

Amigos de Bolivia y Peru is the official membership affiliate group of the
National Peace Corps Association (NPCA), representing Bolivia and Peru. While
most of our members are returned Peace Corps Volunteers and/or Staff, membership
in Amigos de Bolivia y Peru is open to anyone who supports our mission.
You may join Amigos at the same time as you join NPCA -- paying for both at
the same time -- or you may join Amigos (only) directly. By joining Amigos directly (rather than via NPCA), you can take advantage of Amigos discounts for couples, students and retirees; you can join for more than one year at a time; and you can (and hopefully will) add a tax deductible donation to benefit our Kantuta fund. None of these options are available from NPCA. On the other hand, NPCA allows you to pay dues with a credit card; Amigos does not process credit cards.
To join Amigos when joining NPCA:
Go to http://www.peacecorpsconnect.org; from the home page, on the left, select "Join Today." On the Membership page, click the box saying "Join Now." Fill out the information requested. Join NPCA ($35 per person) and then, for your member group, select Amigos de Bolivia y Peru ($15). If your Close of Service (COS) was less than a year ago, your memberships in NPCA and Amigos de Bolivia y Peru are free for one year. Follow those instructions.
To join Amigos directly
Please print and complete
our membership form which is provided here in: pdf
format or Word
.doc format -- download whichever you prefer.
The printed form should be mailed to Amigos de Bolivia y Peru, 7327 University Ave.,
Glen Echo, MD 20812. RPCVs within a year of their COS can join Amigos free.
Everyone else should include a check for the appropriate amount, made out to "Amigos
de Bolivia y Peru." Do
not forget to include in your check a tax-deductible contribution to our Kantuta
fund, specifying to which country you want the money to be targeted.
