Volunteers for Refugee Self-Sufficiency.
Phoenix Union High School District, AZ.
The Volunteers for Refugee Self-Sufficiency (V-FoRSS) uses volunteers to meet the self-sufficiency needs of the refugee community in Phoenix, Arizona. The majority of the volunteers with V-FoRSS are home outreach tutors who provide English as a second language (ESL) and social adjustment skills instruction to adult Indochinese refugees. Classes are held twice a week for two hours in the homes of refugees who do not have access to existing adult ESL programs because of lack of transportation. There is much formal and informal social interaction among the refugee students and volunteers. This document contains the materials used in the V-FoRSS program. The report is organized in four parts. Part I provides general information about the program, while Part II contains the letters, forms, and documents used to conduct the program. Included in these forms are materials used to train volunteers, workshop agenda, volunteer files, and student files. The last two parts of the report consist of a copy of the program's newsletter and publicity releases. (KC)
