Training for the volunteer grandparent project is outlined in terms of volunteer service, personal satisfaction, communication with children, problem solving, arts and crafts, field trips, reading with children, cooking activities, and sharing experiences. Also included is a guide for the training coordinator, which identifies discussion groups, classroom observation, curriculum workshops, group supervision, and resource guides as approaches for training senior citizens. Three sequential learning experiences, detailing learner objectives and activities, are included for the following areas: cooking, children's literature, and pretend play. (BJD)
