The Good Friends Volunteer Program Evaluation Report.
Hooper, Richard
This evaluation report relates data pertaining to the 1975-76 school year. The Good Friends Volunteer Program was established in 1974. During the 1975-76 school year, over 3,000 volunteers in 110 schools participated in the Good Friends program. Duties included giving individual attention to students; enriching programs in such areas as music, art, dramatics, and crafts; tutoring in reading or math; helping in the library, office, playground, or clinic; preparing instructional materials; and transporting other volunteers. Volunteers worked as little as one hour per week up to as much as 30 hours per week. The program evaluation consisted of administering five questionnaires to the affected population--volunteers, teachers, local coordinators, principals, and students in grades 5-12--and interviewing a sample of students in grades K-4. Results are reported for each survey question, and the percentage of responses for each question is noted. On the whole, the Good Friends Volunteer Program received a positive evaluation. The appendixes provide samples of the survey forms, guidelines for the Good Friends program, and an organizational diagram. (MM)
