In this report are described projects and activities undertaken by ACTION's volunteer programs in 1977. The first section concentrates on reviews conducted, including a major review of ACTION's domestic volunteer programs and the management systems supporting them and an assessment of its programs using the Zero-Base Budget approach called for by President Carter. Peace Corps activities are then reviewed for these regions: North Africa, Near East Asia, the Pacific; Latin America, and Africa. Charts summarize (1) basic human needs of the host countries and the number of volunteers serving them, (2) volunteers serving in all host countries from 1962-77, (3) education and age profile of volunteers and trainees, and (4) Peace Corps budget. A section on domestic volunteer programs describes activities of VISTA, University Year for ACTION, Youth Challenge Program, National Student Volunteer Program, and Older Americans Volunteer Programs. Activities of support offices are then overviewed. The report concludes with descriptions of some new ACTION projects, including these: Zero-Base Paperwork, Johnstown Flood Relief, Former Volunteer, Personal Representative Service System, Fixed Income Counseling, Women's Program, and Workplace Democracy.
