Volunteer Programs in Courts: Collected Papers on Productive Programs.
Office of Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Development (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This publication is designed to provide court systems with a manual that presents collected papers detailing major program areas in utilizing volunteers. This manual is in a line of development which tries to establish a how-to-do-it body of special knowledge for courts. This body of knowledge has been built up by 8 years of experience in developing and managing volunteer programs in one of the 2 or 3 pioneer volunteer courts in the nation, Boulder County, Colorado, Juvenile Court. Included in this publication are such topics as: (1) the volunteer probation officer; (2) volunteer tutors in court probation programs; and (3) community volunteers as discussion group leaders for juvenile probationers. Included under these topic headings is specific information related to the selection, training, and utilization of community members as volunteers in the probation court. Relevant information regarding the successes and problems encountered by courts currently using volunteers is also provided. (Author/RK)
