School Volunteer Programs. How They Are Organized and Managed.
Hubley, John W.
Educational volunteer management in recent years has emerged as a highly skilled and specialized profession that is undergoing rapid expansion. Full time staff members have been employed by some boards of education to carry out the specialized management requirements of volunteer recruiting, training, evaluating, assigning, and supervising. A sound volunteer program requires (1) a general statement of goals and objectives and (2) a detailed statement of guidelines and procedures to achieve the goals and objectives. The caliber of those who are sought out and recruited is probably the most decisive factor in achieving a quality program. Recruitment must be followed by adequate orientation or training for the specific assignment. Strong support, encouragement, and enthusiastic appreciation on the part of school administrators and teachers are essential in keeping a volunteer program functioning. (Author/MLF)
