Katz, Douglas S.
Developed for use by either secondary or postsecondary institutions offering vocational education programs, this handbook addresses steps in establishing a volunteer program in conjunction with its vocational education program. The handbook is organized around four major topics: (1) planning the volunteer program (securing support; needs assessment; program goals and objectives; volunteer roles, duties, and responsibilities; school's responsibilities; planning for program implementation; financial considerations; evaluation), (2) program administration (structure, support requirements, program monitoring and record keeping, program supervision, staff relations), (3) program implementation (staff orientation; community relations; identifying specific needs for volunteer assistance; volunteer recruitment, screening, selection, orientation, training, placement, and retention), and (4) evaluation (monitoring program performance, evaluating program impact, internal and external evaluation). Sample forms are provided. (YLB)
