The Friends of Jordan Association was founded in 2004 with a group of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) from Jordan along with former in-country staff. This group of RPCVs and former staff adopted the concept for Friends of Jordan from existing Peace Corps country “Friends of” groups. Peace Corps Jordan began in 1997, and six groups of returned volunteers existed by 2004. These returned volunteers were interested in having an organization that would bring them all together, help them stay connected to Jordan, connect them to others outside of the Peace Corps with an interest in Jordan, and provide a base for Jordan-oriented educational and charitable activities.

To find out more about Friends of Jordan, please continue check out our mission, our team, and our official documents and reports. And of course, feel free to contact us at any time.
