The Peace Corps has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance, a proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The proposed collection will survey a sample of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers about their thoughts about their in-country experience, post-service transition, post- service education and career, and their third core goal activities of promoting a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans. The data collected will inform agency programming and help the Agency to assess, through updated and objective data, the extent of RPCVs' cross-cultural activities with their family, friends, and communities throughout the United States with whom RPCVs come in contact. The data will be used specifically by the Office of Domestic Programs to review the range and type of services and support available to RPCVs and by the Office of Strategic Information, Research, and Planning to support Agency level reporting. In addition to the survey, the Office of Strategic Information, Research, and Planning wishes to conduct focus groups with Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) about their post-service transition, post-service education and career, and their third goal activities of promoting a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.
