Membership

Friends of the Dominican Republic represents the Peace Corps Dominican Republic community. Members consist of current and former Peace Corps volunteers and staff and friends who share an interest in our mission. We welcome everyone but especially the volunteers and staff that have been connected to Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic. 

Why become a member?

You never stopped caring.
Your Peace Corps experience doesn’t end. You are forever connected with the 4,224 people who shared similar experiences in the Dominican Republic and the culture and people of the country you temporarily called home.

Stay connected.
You maintain your Peace Corps connections and make new ones through our social networking sites, newsletter, reunions and member database.

Opportunities to continue to make a difference.
You support community development projects of Peace Corps volunteers and promote world peace and friendship through helping others gain an understanding of the people and culture of the Dominican Republic. 

We have two types of members:

Registered (associate members)
Registered members are individuals who are or have served as a Peace Corps volunteer or worked as staff in the Dominican Republic. We do not receive a list of currently serving volunteers, so please register and become part of our community. We also try hard to find all former volunteers. If you do not receive our newsletter, please register. We want to keep in touch.

Paid (general members)
With a nominal annual $15 fee you become a paid member. You have the right to vote and be a board member. FDR is a lean organization, and this small fee is stretched to not only cover minimal administrative and fundraising costs but also aids development efforts. Become a paid member today and you can strengthen this community and communities in the Dominican Republic!
