Development of a Model for a Senior Citizen Bureau. Final Report.
Stoehr, Keith W.; Covelli, Nicholas J.
Following an extensive literature review and a review of programs in 16 community colleges in fourteen states, this study sets forth a guide for educational program development for senior citizens who are defined as those who are 62 years of age and older. The author recommends that: (1) a full-time program specialist be hired to institute programs and services; (2) a district Senior Citizen Advisory Committee be formed to assist the specialist; (3) an assessment of existing programs be made; (4) five program areas be established covering enrichment, retirement planning, second careers, advocacy, and direct service; (5) special recruitment approaches be used including personal contacts, staff visits to senior citizen gathering places, and announcements in senior citizen newsletters and local newspapers; and (6) community locations be used to conduct courses and programs. Designed as a tool for vocational, technical, and adult education district staff, the document also contains information on federal funding agencies. Descriptions of 24 courses designed for senior citizens and an extensive bibliography are appended. (RT)
