A Guide for Co-ordinators of Volunteers and Volunteer Services in Schools.
Freund, Janet W., Comp.
This manual for those responsible for matching teacher requests and student needs to volunteer services is applicable to a variety of school volunteer programs but concentrates on the type of volunteer service which evolved from the Winnetka, Illinois, project in which older citizens in the community form a "talent pool" to work to enrich the curriculum and to motivate children's interest and effort, some in a one-to-one relationship, some with small groups, some with whole classes. Chapter titles are (1) Orientation, (2) The Volunteer Brings New Meanings to Education, (3) The Appropriate Volunteers Are Available (includes designs for consultation and demonstration schedule), (4) The Process of Referral, (5) Directives for Coordinators, (6) Directives for Volunteers, (7) The Volunteer Program with Reference to Academic Motivation, (8) The Volunteer Program with Reference to the Learning Laboratory, (9) Projections for Coordinators (including suggested structure for a school pilot program using appropriate knowledgeable volunteers), (10) Examples (among which are A Coordinator's Typical School Day; Sketches of Volunteers and Their Projects; A Conference with Inner-City School and Community Representatives). Included with each chapter are suggested readings and activities to further aid in the development of the skills and knowledge necessary for coordinating volunteer programs. (JS)
