A Handbook for Developing a Precollege Program and Involving College Students in a Community Service Project and a Report of the Precollegiate Enrichment Program, West Georgia College.
Michael, Jacqueline R.
This document includes a report describing the Precollegiate Enrichment Program at West Georgia College and a handbook developed by the program. The program was designed to meet both financial and volunteer needs of college students and to encourage children, ages 10-12, to continue their education past high school. Twenty academically talented college students needing financial assistance received stipends of $200 per quarter to be tutor/mentors to 20 disadvantaged children. The children were provided with tutorial enrichment sessions, monthly visits to the college, and field trips to cultural programs in the Atlanta area. External evaluation assessed the program as being very beneficial to the children, college students, and the community. The handbook developed by the program describes: (1) the program's purpose, assumptions, and objectives; (2) planning activities such as presenting ideas to key personnel, identifying and securing funding sources, and hiring and training staff; (3) guidelines for program activities, covering tutoring/enrichment sessions, campus socialization experiences, cultural awareness trips, the evaluation process, and tips from tutors. The handbook also includes an annotated bibliography of 13 items listed by both title and author. (DB)
