     Minimize the reporting burden on those who are to respond,



Abstract of Proposed Collections



    These information collections will allow ECA/P/V to conduct pre-

program, post-program and follow-up surveys of exchange participants 

from various ECA exchange programs that are focused on youth and 

leadership using pre-approved questions. For the purposes of this 

collection ``youth'' is defined solely as high-school aged. Collecting 

this data will allow ECA/P/V to help inform the overall effectiveness 

of ECA youth and leadership programs, by gathering data to be used for 

program support, such as planning and design, as well as to help 

monitor the program's performance. Respondents are the exchange

participants who participate in youth and leadership programs through 

ECA.

     ECA/P/V: Youth and Leadership Programs: Pre Program Survey 

Questions: This collection will cover pre-program surveys.

     ECA/P/V: Youth and Leadership Programs: Post Program 

Survey Questions: This collection will cover post program surveys

     ECA/P/V: Youth and Leadership Programs: Follow-up Program 

Survey Questions: This collection will cover follow-up program surveys.



Methodology



    ECA/P/V estimates that at least 90% of the data collected through 

these information collections will be done so electronically via a web-

based surveying system for ease of use. Non-electronic means such as 

paper surveys will be used when electronic means are not technically 

feasible.



Additional Information



    These three collections together represent the full spectrum of the 

performance measurement process (i.e. a pre-program, post-program, and 

follow-up program surveying), and data collected across these 

collections will be used to monitor ECA's youth and leadership 

programs. The proposed questions have been designed to appear across 

these collections as appropriate, and therefore it is imperative that 

these questions remain unchanged so as to continue our vital 

performance measurement work.
