A Training Plan for Campus-Community Organizers.
Senterfitt, Pam; Toothaker, Allen
Designed as a possible 1-semester university course outline, this manual describes a training program for "Campus-Community Organizers" (CCO). The program enables college students to establish a liaison with poor communities in order to find ways in which the vast financial and technical resources of universities can become more accessible to the poor of America. The CCO's job is to identify skills within the university and, with the help of community members, construct a program or project that benefits both students and community. Because students are a university's most available resource and are well equipped to develop educational programs, they can assist the poor in establishing community learning centers, tutorial programs, adult education programs, and other educational and recreational facilities. A variety of training models are presented: attitudinal confrontations, group dynamics seminars, community organization sessions, and field work. All of the models place an emphasis on the development of the trainee's clear understanding of his motivations, role, and expectations. A required reading list and sample test for trainees are included. (JS)
