Collection of this information is necessary to document service of volunteers as required by FPM Supplement 296-33, Subchapter 3. Agencies are authorized to recruit, train, and accept, with regard to civil service classification laws, rules or regulations, the services of individuals to serve without compensation. Volunteers may assist in any agency program/project, and may perform any activities which agency employees are allowed to do. Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age.

Persons interested in volunteering will have to write, call, e-mail, or visit a Natural Resources Conservation Service Office. The forms will be available electronically, and can be completed electronically.

Description of Information Collection:

The NRCS-PERS-002, Volunteer Interest and Placement Summary, is an optional form that assists the volunteer supervisor in placing the volunteer in a position that will benefit both the agency and the volunteer. The form is placed in a volunteer case file, and will be destroyed three years after the volunteer has completed service. In the event that the volunteer is injured, the case file will be transferred to the Official Personnel Folder.
