More Information

Importance of VRF

Thank you for conscientiously and accurately completing your VRF. At your post, staff will review the information you provide:

  • to assist you in your service and provide you feedback,
  • to assess the progress and planning for their projects, and
  • to report to their stakeholders and partners in country, internationally, and at headquarters.

The information you report via the VRF is an important part of the demonstrable success of Peace Corps.

About VRF

Your Volunteer Report Form (VRF) will typically be sent by email from your APCD or PM, although they might also send it on a USB/thumb drive. It will be titled something like Your_Name_Start_Date_End_Date.vrf. You must complete it and submit it to your APCD or PM (or whoever they designate) by the due date for the reporting period. The Due Date is included on the VRF Start Page when you open it or in the email when it was sent. If no due date is provided, try to submit it as close to the end of the reporting period as possible (the end date of the reporting period is included in the file name and on the VRF Start Page.

Submit VRF

To submit your completed VRF, please attach the completed .VRF file (again, named something like Your_Name_Start_Date_End_Date.vrf) to an email and send it to your APCD or PM (or whoever they designate). Alternatively, if they have agreed to use a USB / thumb drive, send them the USB/thumb drive.
