Project VUE: Volunteers Upholding Education.
Thurber, John C.
This document reports on a project aimed at developing, implementing, and evaluating a plan for using volunteer classroom aides in the Palm Beach County (Florida) schools as a means for meeting various financial, human, and community needs. The desirability of a comprehensive volunteer plan was presented in a 10-point summary by an ad hoc committee, and a 17-member committee was charged with designing a volunteer aide program. The program was carried out in seven phases during the 1972-73 school year. Ninety-five types of activities that would be performed by aides were identified and further classified as resource or regularly scheduled activities. A full-time specialist was employed to coordinate recruitment, training, evaluation, and other elements of the program. As a result of the program, the school system added 900 volunteers to its classroom personnel during a 15-month period. Performance and attitudinal evaluation indicated that the process and performance objectives of the program were successfully achieved. (Author)
