ABC's: A Handbook for Educational Volunteers.
Chambers, Jewell C., Ed.
This handbook presents information on the organization and execution of volunteer programs. Some general questions are answered concerning the aims of a volunteer program, the cost of these programs, and the types of services educational volunteers perform. The organization and administration of these programs are discussed in relation to specific needs. The processes of interviewing, selecting, orienting, training, and assigning volunteers are explained with various techniques and schedules. The importance of orienting and training professional personnel involved in volunteer programs is cited. The uses of high school students as volunteers are explored, with emphasis on training through workshops. The maintenance of morale among volunteers is emphasized since the success of any volunteer program rests upon this. The procedures for evaluating the program are detailed with evaluation forms for the volunteers, teachers or staff members, principals or administrators, and volunteer coordinators. The bibliography presents books on volunteer educational programs. (BRB)
