Katimavik Participant's Manual, Book I, Introduction = Katimavik manuel du participant, cahier I, avant-propos. Revised Edition.
Crelinsten, Michael, Ed.
The introductory volume of the bilingual Katimavik program student manual summarizes the history and purpose of the Katimavik experience; outlines program objectives and learning program subject areas; explains how to use the individual learning activity student manuals, how to create individual and group development plans, and how to develop a Katimavik resume; and acknowledges individuals and organizations responsible for the manual. The nine-month volunteer program was organized by the Canadian government in 1978 to provide youths between the ages of 17 and 21 with an opportunity to serve society, to gain knowledge and an understanding of Canada, to develop environmental awareness, and to experience personal development. These four objectives are realized through eight interrelated action-based learning programs which focus on work skills, second language (French or English), environment and appropriate technology, billeting (a direct live-in relationship with a family for a 2 or 3 week period), socio-cultural activities, nutrition and well-being, active leisure, and international awareness. Students design individual and group development plans from the guidelines outlined in the student manuals for each of the eight learning programs and maintain running resumes throughout the program to identify learning activities and accomplishments for themselves and others.
