A Manual for Students Volunteering.
ACTION, Washington, DC.
The student volunteer movement developed in the 60's in response to a growing concern throughout the country for social problems. Since 1963, the movement has grown from a small group of 5,000 students to an estimated 400,000 students working in over 2,000 programs in more than 80% of the colleges in the country. Most projects are concerned with resolving the problems that plague society. This manual has been produced in response to the need of students who want to start a volunteer program. It is also addressed to those who have a program in operation now, but want to expand or improve it. The purpose of the manual is to share experience already gained and to provide new ideas.
