Dear Stephanie and CIPCA,
As our Midwest Peace Corps Office kicks off our summer community outreach initiatives we have been informed of a great opportunity for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers in
and around the Indianapolis community to become involved with the week of June 16-22nd. The opportunity is with
Project Stepping Stone of Indiana in which roughly 80 talented and ambitious 16 to 18 year-old students from around Indiana will embark on a one-week college prep summer program in Indianapolis that
assists Hispanic high school students successfully prepare for college and beyond. In line with the third goal of Peace Corps and the commitment to service Returned Peace Corps Volunteers possess, Project Stepping Stone is seeking adult mentors for the young
scholars as they participate in many activities throughout the week. What mentors could be better than Returned Peace Corps Volunteers who have seen the world from a global macro and micro level! Returned Peace Corps Volunteers can locate the schedule
here and please contact the coordinators Kathy Cabello via phone at
312.209.9991 or you can email Kathy and Dottie Parson at the following addresses:
If you are interested in becoming a adult mentor for the week a convenient background check will need to be conducted (Day 5 of the schedule excluded). I hope all RPCVs
can participate in some way whether personally or notifying a colleague or friend of the opportunity. If your employer offers employee volunteer hours/EVP or community give back hours this is a great opportunity for the summer! Please look at your schedules
for the summer and see how you can make a difference in the personal and professional development of young scholars in your community as you did during your Peace Corps service. As you come across newly Returned Peace Corps Volunteers please inform them as
well. Kathy and Dottie will provide a best date to confirm all volunteers commitment to participate and I have also provided a attachment with additional information.
A colleague and I are also attempting to coordinate a Peace Corps Night with the Indianapolis Indians and Indiana Fever on June 21st and 22nd along
with a Peace Corps information table at the Eiteljorg Museum’s Annual Indian Market Festival on the 22nd
. More details to come on these events.
Feel free to contact me if anyone has questions or suggestions.

It was a pleasure speaking with you and hearing of your interest in getting involved with Project Stepping Stone. Attached is a flyer with information on the Career Fair & Mock Interview session.
We welcome your participation and hope your team members will be able to participate.
Also, the community service project is on Friday in the afternoon (6/21). We would like for you or a volunteer to address the students on Friday after/before the project to talk about volunteerism and giving back. If this is something you
would like to do, please let me know.
I'll send you something on being a mentor in a separate email.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
