Literacy Volunteers, Inc., Syracuse, NY.
The project was assigned with the purpose of providing adult basic education directors in Regions 1, 2, 5 and 10 of the U.S. Office of Education with the technical capability of using staff and volunteers to organize and manage the training of volunteers to tutor adults in basic reading and writing. Two training workshops were conducted in each region for basic reading tutor training, workshop leaders training, and organizational management training. Descriptions of the workshops held in each region cover the following topics: (1) initial planning and orientation session, (2) initial workshop, (3) second workshop, (4) inservice training/consultancy visit, and (5) technical assistance. Information dissemination activities are reported and data collection methods discussed. A favorable evaluation of the program's effectiveness in achieving its objectives was based on the results gathered from formative, summative, and informal data acquired from participants and questionnaires given to the regional project directors. Data on workshops conducted by participants and the questionnaire are presented. Objectives for workshop training, workshop leaders training, and volunteer management training are appended.
