Warmbrod, Catharine P.; Eisner, Hannah R.
Based on technical assistance materials prepared for Project ASSERT (Activity to Support the Strengthening of Education through Retired Technicians), this handbook is designed to provide colleges wishing to implement a retiree's volunteer program with guidelines and information. The material is organized into eight major components: determine program feasibility, generate awareness, put the program in place, recruit and place volunteers, monitor and promote the program, and evaluate and renew. The section on each component discusses in detail the activities to be conducted both in the college and the community. To illustrate points made, examples of experiences at the two college demonstration sites are included. At the end of each program component section, resource materials are provided. (YLB)
