General Description of Collection: Peace Corps will use this information in order to learn whether an applicant possesses the necessary characteristics and skills to serve as a Volunteer. If Peace Corps were unable to gather responses to the interview questions and record the information requested on this form, the agency would run the risk of sending poorly qualified or unqualified representatives into foreign countries.
