Report of the Second AID - NAFSA Workshop.
Agency for International Development (Dept. of State), Washington, DC. Office of International Training.; National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, Washington, DC.
The second AID-NAFSA workshop members included many of the staff of the Office of International Training, 31 Foreign Student Advisors, and 23 other members of NAFSA. The three main objectives of the program are: to improve the capability of the participants by new knowledge and skills; to expose them to modernization and popular participation at community level; and to provide an opportunity to see the U.S. Other concerns included: the protection of the individual participant; possible alienation of a participant by long absence from home; the need for COMSEC to embrace all sections of the community; the need for increase student participation in decisionmaking in community programs; the lack of provision for dependents; and the need for a known point of contact on the campus for AID- university communication. As was intended, the working groups produced a number of recommendations. Other proposals made during the workshops ranged from some of major importance concerning policy to suggestions for minor improvements; but all were of value in contributing to the betterment of the Participant Training Program.
