Volunteer Activities "Pending" to "Completed"
« on: February 24, 2014, 02:01:00 PM »
Little confused when checking off these tasks in the New Volunteer Portal. When I'm going through all these activities and checking whether I've done them or not, some of the tasks I have no idea where to find the information. "World Wise School Application," "Hometown News Release," "Savings Bond Deductions," etc. Where on earth is this stuff??

If the forum could provided some feedback, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Those things are optional, rather than required, before you start service.

For World Wise Schools, you can sign up here: https://www.peacecorps.gov/wws/volunteers/correspondence/enroll/
Again, it's totally optional, but a pretty cool program.

Hometown news release: if you want, you can contact your local paper to let them know about your impending departure and ask if they could write an article about it.

Savings Bond Deductions: this is if you want to purchase savings bonds with your readjustment allowance, if I'm not mistaken. If I recall correctly, paperwork for this was provided at staging, but it might have changed in recent years.

Some of the forms made sense once I finished reading the volunteer handbook (for instance, there is an explanation about the savings bond deduction in it)
