The report reveals some of the obstacles that make the use of volunteers difficult, discusses ways of dealing with these problems, and examines the relationship between teacher and volunteer. A definite structure is considered essential to both a successful volunteer program and to volunteer training. The report discusses the importance of a volunteer coordinator, the role of the volunteer in educational innovation, and the means by which a volunteer program could be monitored and evaluated. (DN)
