Student Volunteers; a Manual for Communities.
American Friends Service Committee, New York, NY. Metropolitan Regional Office.
Intended as a guide for those groups who use student volunteers, this manual presents possibilities and pitfalls in using student volunteers and illustrates these with case studies and examples. Ways and means of getting a student volunteer program started are discussed, and techniques for planning and developing the program are described. The responsibilities of groups who use volunteers are presented in relation to funding, orientation, training, supervision, and evaluation. The volunteer program is seen as providing benefits to the students as well as to the community. The final chapter in the manual presents a survey of projects, operational or in planning, that are concerned with education, employment training and opportunities, economic assistance, environment and ecology, community organization, work with children, community health, correctional institutions, housing, and miscellaneous services. Four appendixes provide a short announcement for use in alerting the community to the possibilities of student volunteering, a sample volunteer evaluation form, a sample contract form, and questions for agencies using student volunteers.
