Planning and Managing Community Programs: A Process Approach.
Matejic, Denise M.; And Others
This handbook is for anyone interested in developing a community educational outreach program. It was prepared as part of a project concerned with teaching personal and family finance. Its content, however, is general enough in nature to apply to any type of education project. An introduction presents information on the development of the handbook, and the next four chapters discuss the developmental process of a community-based educational program. This developmental process contains five phases: (1) community and clientele analysis (needs assessment); (2) objective setting; (3) program design; (4) program implementation; and (5) program evaluation. Concrete examples of programs illustrate many of the concepts presented, such as utilizing community resources and working with advisory committees. Samples of various forms and charts are also included. (BM)
