High School Student Volunteers.
ACTION, Washington, DC.
This report endorses the concept of student volunteer programs and suggests that the high school and community organize their authority and resources to establish such programs. If both community needs and interested students exist, then the high school can coordinate individual projects into a coherent program to eliminate duplicated efforts, to minimize the consequence of student inexperience, and to lend force and direction to the program. The high school can relate the volunteer project to classroom learning by a variety of approaches. The report briefly discusses program organization, recruitment, orientation and training, supervision, and evaluation. It also provides project ideas and sample records and forms. (Author/LAA)
