Volunteers: A Challenge For Extension Workers: Developing Volunteer Leaders From Disadvantaged Families.
Partin, Minerva O.; And Others
A series of guidelines for use by Extension agents, as they involve socially and economically disadvantaged youth and adults in volunteer leadership roles in rural and urban Extension programs, is presented. Section headings are: Know Your Audience, Establish Rapport, Levels of Leadership, Leader Development, Leadership Roles, Volunteer Recruitment, Evaluation, The Agent's Role, and a Bibliography is furnished. It is concluded that the need for indigenous volunteers to work with Extension workers has never been greater. The success that Extension achieves in engaging volunteers from among the disadvantaged will depend on the extent and level of the volunteer's involvement, thoroughness in educational program planning and Extension's commitment to serve all people.
