Join fellow RPCV developers, designers, scientists, artists, educators, entrepreneurs and activists in a National Day of Civic Hacking at SF State June 1st and 2nd. We'll be hacking to collaboratively create, build, and invent new solutions to solve challenges relevant to prospective Volunteers, serving volunteers and RPCVs. Potential challenges include
-app to connect prospective volunteers with Returned Peace Corps Volunteers in their area
-calendaring/meet-up app to assist resource-poor groups seeking to organize and better serve RPCVs and their communities
-app so Volunteers can request replenishment of their Peace Corps medical supplies through cell phone text messages and an online web-form
-And many more
To join this group contact Yune Lee at ylee[at]peacecorps.gov. Yune will be organizing a pow-wow on May 29th to coordinate and discuss problems to be addressed during the event.
