Simformation 2: Organizing Volunteer Programs in IGE Schools.
Bartels, Lois I.
The purpose of this document (one in a series of six) is to provide a framework for organizing a community volunteer program to meet the instructional and home-school-community relations goals of an individually guided education school. The first steps in starting a volunteer program are to identify the instructional need for volunteer assistance, create staff and community awareness and support for a program, and determine the role of the volunteers in the home-school-community relations program. After these preliminary steps are completed, the goals for the program must be set. Once the goals are set, the activities that are essential to the success of a volunteer program must be attended to. These activities include coordination of the program, preservice and inservice training for the staff, recruitment of volunteers, orientation and placement of volunteers, preservice and inservice training of volunteers, recognition for the volunteers, and evaluation of the program. Suggestions for how to perform these activities successfully are included along with sample forms for use in program evaluation. (Author/IRT)
