This request is a collaboration with journalist Corin Faife.

If a Peace Corps volunteer chooses to resign from their position (as opposed to ending their service due to a medical condition or regional political situation), an assessment of the reason for this resignation is made by a supervising staff officer and collected via Form MS-284 Attachment D (“Resignation Form”).

According to a Federal Register notice, information collected through this form is stored in the system of records known as “Peace Corps Volunteers: Reasons for Resignation, PEACE CORPS/PC-7,” or “PC-7” for short.

Our FOIA request 📄 seeks all database records stored within the PC-7 system (as well as all analogous resignation form records stored in systems that may have preceded or succeeded PC-7), with the exception of data fields that contain personally-identifiable information.
