VOLUNTEERS TODAY--FINDING, TRAINING AND WORKING WITH THEM.
NAYLOR, HARRIET H.
THE MAJOR CHALLENGE NOW FACING VOLUNTARY ORGANIZATIONS, ESPECIALLY IN VIEW OF SUCH COMPETING FEDERAL PROGRAMS AS THE PEACE CORPS AND VISTA, IS TO RECRUIT, TRAIN, AND HOLD A SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF PROMISING VOLUNTEERS, PARTICULARLY AT THE POLICY MAKING LEVEL. SINCE FUTURE VOLUNTEERS WILL COME INCREASINGLY FROM THE RANKS OF THE TECHNICALLY EDUCATED RATHER THAN THE LIBERALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY EDUCATED, TRAINING PROCEDURES AND UNDERLYING ASSUMPTIONS MUST BE ALTERED ACCORDINGLY. TRAINING SHOULD COMPRISE ORIENTATION TO ORGANIZATIONAL PURPOSES AND PROCEDURES, INITIAL JOB TRAINING COURSES, AND ADVANCED TRAINING THROUGH WORKSHOPS, CONFERENCES, AND SIMILAR MEANS. TRAINING DESIGN INVOLVES SEVERAL DIMENSIONS--PERSONNEL (NEW TRAINEES, BOARD MEMBERS, FUND RAISERS, GROUP LEADERS, COMMITTEE CHAIRMEN AND SECRETARIES), OBJECTIVES, RESOURCE PERSONS AND MATERIALS, METHODS AND FORMS OF TRAINING, SCHEDULING, AND SPECIAL EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES. CAREFUL SELECTION AND PLACEMENT, PROVISION FOR MOBILITY, AND A CONSIDERATION OF FUTURE NEEDS ARE ALSO VITAL. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES EXAMPLES OF JOB DESCRIPTIONS, A QUESTIONNAIRE, DIAGRAMS AND FORMS, AND 72 REFERENCES.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM ASSOCIATION PRESS, NEW YORK. (LY)
