Title: AmeriCorps Alumni Profile Card. (Previously named the AmeriCorps*VISTA Locator Card.)

OMB Number: 3045-0048.

Agency Number: None.

Affected Public: Individuals and households.

Total Respondents: 12,000.

Description: The Corporation proposes to reinstate, with change, the AmeriCorps Alumni Profile Card to send to former AmeriCorps and VISTA members' home addresses requesting that they complete the card and return it to the AmeriCorps Recruitment Office. The card will be used by Corporation personnel and other organizations (only with the explicit written permission of the respondent). The purpose of the card is to enhance communications between the Corporation and former AmeriCorps members, to provide them with information on Corporation activities, and to seek their assistance in volunteer recruitment activities.

The Corporation proposes to revise the AmeriCorps Alumni Profile Card by changing the name to more accurately describe the information collection and to include the members who served in all AmeriCorps programs. In addition, the Corporation will delete unused information from the existing version of the card, including removing questions pertaining to meeting facilities and housing and collecting the following data from the former member:

  • The exact dates of service from the person filling out the AmeriCorps Alumni Profile Card.
  • Detailed information about the person's current interests, occupation and expertise.
  • Collecting the person's cell phone number for those who prefer to be contacted in that manner.

The Corporation also plans to gather additional information about former members' current education levels. This will help the Corporation to more accurately gear communication to former members who may be interested in furthering their education or who may benefit from a particular new initiative.

Further, the Corporation proposes to revise the AmeriCorps Alumni Profile Card by asking former members to identify their involvement with the Corporation or community.
