Weekend Program. Project CHILD. Implementation Guidebook Series.

Using the Geneseo Migrant Center's Weekend Recreation Program as an example, the booklet is designed to assist directors and administrators in establishing a Weekend Recreational Program to meet educational, recreational, emotional, and social needs of participating migrant families, and to serve as a resource during the implementation of the program. Activities of the program are described from its inception in 1972 through 1977 when it served approximately 1,506 workers and operated from July 10 to November 6. In addition to listing program goals and objectives, various elements of program planning are stressed: funding, staff, transportation, recruitment, facilities, supplies and equipment, program events, clothing room, child care area, health procedures, food service procedures, and staff development. A section on evaluating and monitoring the program recognizes the difficulty of using standardized or norm referenced techniques to evaluate a Weekend Recreation Program, but notes that programs must be sure to meet guidelines of funding sources. Migrant and grower involvement in planning the program is stressed as is the need for staff orientation and communication. Job descriptions for all program positions are included. Nine appendixes provide examples of checklists, rosters, agendas, and forms, and summaries of five years' activities at Geneseo's weekend program. (BRR)
