The Northern California Peace Corps Association is hosting the Third Goal Film Night on Tuesday, Feb 25th. Peace Corps’s three goals include:
1. To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women
2. To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served
3. To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans
So the Third Goal is about educating Americans about the foreign cultures that Peace Corps Volunteers experienced while working abroad. These films focus on Peace Corps service, RPCV development projects, and women's empowerment in the developing world. All of the films were shot in various Peace Corps countries around the world.
We are charging a five dollar entry fee for this event to raise funds for the Northern California Peace Corps Association Grants Program.
The Third-Goal Film Night runs from 7:30-9:30pm, at the Delancey Street Foundation Screening Room – 600 Embarcadero at Brannan St (near the baseball park). The film night includes 20 minute excerpts from all 3 films, plus a 1 hour Q&A with the filmmakers.
This independent film documents the personal journeys of three Peace Corps volunteers in Azerbaijan, Liberia and the Philippines over their 27 months of service.
Posh Corps is a documentary that focuses on the lives of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa. South Africa is one of the most modern countries in which Peace Corps Volunteers serve. Through the eyes of volunteers in South Africa, we discover a unique glimpse into the future. As the third-world slowly becomes the first-world, the struggles of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa provide a window into the struggles of volunteers throughout the developing world.
