Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request
The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter the ``Corporation''), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) (44 U.S.C. Sec. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirement on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Corporation is soliciting comments concerning data collection for the Understanding the Value of Service in Participant's Experience project. The goals of the project are: (1) To strengthen national service by ensuring that participants consistently find satisfaction and self-efficacy; (2) to determine what contributes to a defining or transformative service experience; (3) to assess whether and how Corporation programs are helping to provide that defining experience; (4) to understand whether and how participants experience connections to their service experience in order to develop knowledge and refine hypotheses about whether, how, when, and why participation in national service delivers benefits to the participants themselves. The study uses focus groups and surveys to understand the experience. Copies of the information collection requests can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the address section of this notice.
