Roving Recreation Leader Project: Phase III. Final Report. Evaluation of Roving Recreation Leader Training Guide--An In-Service Training Source for Inner City Youth Service Personnel.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Office of Recreation and Park Resources.; Illinois State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Springfield.
The objective of Phase III was to determine, via an experimental study, whether the Roving Recreation Leader Training Guide (RRLTG), as developed by the University of Illinois' Office of Recreation and Park Resources, was an effective tool for training and educating Roving Leaders. The subjects in this study, conducted in New York City, were the Youth Services Agency of the Human Resources Administration. Four instruments were designed to test the effectiveness of the training programs given to the Experimental Group and Control Group A. The instruments were designed to measure the abilities of the trainees in these 2 training groups, as well as Control Group B, which received no formal training. The basic hypothesis of this study, therefore, was that Roving Leaders exposed to the training methods and techniques suggested in the guide would be more effective, as measured by the 4 instruments. The findings indicated that Roving Leaders exposed to the methods and techniques suggested in the RRLTG were more effective. Some recommendations for further use of the RRLTG were that it be implemented in those agencies currently offering other training programs or no training programs for their Roving Leaders and that in future experiments, the investigator be permitted greater control over the environment in which the training occurs.
