Guidelines for Adult Basic Education Volunteers.
Leppert, Alice M.
This booklet contains suggestions for creating an effective, "custom-made" local unit of volunteers, using the educational and social action resources of the community for volunteer training. The suggestions are tailored to fit the flexible mode of operation of Church Women United in a wide variety of communities. The statements related to an overall view of the adult basic education field, the primacy of reading instruction for the undereducated, and the role of an effective volunteer agency are important considerations not only for tutoring programs sponsored by Church Women United, but also for all adult tutoring programs no matter how varied their sponsorship might be.
