Information Collection Abstract

Title: Peace Corps Week Brochure Registration Form.

Need For and Use of This Information: This collection of information is necessary because the Peace Corps' Office of Domestic Programs builds awareness of the continuing benefits that former Volunteers bring back to the United States after their service through its Coverdell World Wise Schools program, the Fellows/USA graduate fellowship program, Returned Volunteers Services program, and through the Peace Corps Week program. The Peace Corps Week program is in support of the third goal of the Peace Corps. For more than 13 years, programs and publications have aimed to harness the cross-cultural experiences of returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) to foster better global understanding among Americans, and particularly students, throughout the United States.

The information is used by the Office of Domestic Programs to send presentation and education materials to RPCVs, which enhances the quality of the presentations carried out by RPCVs to people in their home communities. Information is also used by Public Affairs Specialists to promote Peace Corps Week regionally, broadly raising awareness for the Peace Corps and augmenting recruiting efforts. Parents of currently serving Volunteers may also receive Peace Corps Week presentation kits.

Respondents: Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.

Respondents Obligation to Reply: Voluntary.

Burden on the Public:

a. Annual reporting burden: 500 hours.

b. Annual record keeping burden: 0.

c. Estimated average burden per response: 3 minutes.

d. Frequency of response: one time.

e. Estimated number of likely respondents: 10,000.

f. Estimated cost to respondents: $1.15.

Responses will be returned by postage-paid business reply card, fax, e-mail, and downloaded from the Peace Corps Week Web site (www.peacecorps.gov).
