Volunteer Program Management: A Suggested Community College Curriculum.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
This curriculum guide was prepared to assist community college administrators in the development of an education and training program for persons who desire to become directors of volunteer programs and for those currently so employed who desire upgrading or retraining to meet new trends. Following a brief discussion of the need for trained volunteer services administrators, the document considers the following issues: the kinds of students such a curriculum will attract; the kinds of knowledge, attitudes, skills, and abilities needed for social/human services work; why people volunteer; the tasks of the director of volunteer services; faculty responsibilities; student recruitment; the administrative organization of the program; resources available for program planning; articulation; and the basic concepts of the program. The remainder of the document consists of a general introduction to the issues and decisions involved in planning the curriculum and a curriculum outline. The curriculum outline contains course descriptions and performance objectives for each of 12 modules. An extensive bibliography is appended. (DC)
