In-Service Workshop Model. Development Work, Volunteer Service and Project Review. Core Curriculum Resource Materials.
A model is provided for an inservice workshop to provide systematic project review, conduct individual volunteer support and problem solving, and conduct future work planning. Information on model use and general instructions are presented. Materials are provided for 12 sessions covering a 5-day period. The first session on climate setting and needs assessment and expectations is designed to uncover needs and problems. The next nine sessions are designed to address these problems. Specific topics are: project review of past 4 months; expectation mapping and project review; self and personal problem solving; cultural/community/coworker support issues; Peace Corps expectation and policy review; volunteer physical health; supportive issues related to peers, spouse, women's issues or men's issues; ministry support and role analysis; and development and change. The last two sessions are used for action planning for the next 6 months and to solicit feedback and assess the workshop. Each session is organized as follows: goals/objectives, time, procedures (the training activities suggested to accomplish the goals and the approximate time to complete each activity), and trainer notes that expand upon basic procedures and give alternatives. An optional session on information filtering is appended. (YLB)
