Leisure Services Personnel and Community Education. Role Guide Series #9.
Decker, Virginia A., Ed.
This guide is the ninth in a series of eleven generated in 1978 as the result of workshops that focused on peer training, a different approach to teaching. The workshops provided the opportunity for members of eleven identified role groups to work together with peers to examine the relationship between their specific role group and community education and the ways in which they could stimulate their peers to improve role performance and effectiveness. This booklet focuses on community education as seen by leisure services personnel, such as parks and recreation professionals. Topics considered include responsibilities, problems and benefits, training needs, involving citizens in community education, coordinating and cooperating with other agencies, and developing a community education/leisure services partnership. A detailed section at the end describes exemplary community education programs. (Author/LD)
