Preparation for Encounter; Training Peace Corps Volunteers for Community Involvement Through Community Exploration.
Ruopp, Phillips; Wrobel, Paul
A result of two years' experience at the Virgin Islands Training Center, this handbook on Peace Corps volunteer training for community involvement covers types of activities used (one-day community visits, small discussion groups on communities visited, group consultations to develop community exploration methods, field training and its evaluation, preparing reports after field trips, working out a method for initial exploration of the host country overseas); training goals; personal and other resources (including staff, media, materials, and the community itself); and steps in integrating the components of training. Specific objectives, techniques, instructions to staff and to trainees, and typical problems for each type of activity are indicated, together with the general rationale for using the community exploration method. Appendixes include suggested readings, time and source sheets, hints on preparing field notes, a group plan for community exploration, and a model of community patterns, elements, and unifying factors.
