Bears and Butterflies: The Literacy Volunteers of Gloucester. Project POWER 1982-83.
This booklet is a step-by-step explanation of how Gloucester County, Virginia, developed a solid and effective affiliate of Literacy Volunteers of America. It begins with a history of People Organized for Worthwhile Education of Residents (Project POWER). A discussion follows of the planning for this 1-year program for the development of a support base for a volunteer tutorial program for adults enrolled in the local adult basic education (ABE) or English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) program. The implementation of the two goals/thrusts of Project POWER is described: the establishment of a volunteer tutorial program to instruct adult ESL and ABE students to complement and improve the existing adult education program and the establishment of the Literacy Volunteers of Gloucester (LVG), an affiliate of the Literacy Volunteers of America. Future plans for LVG are identified. Appendixes include a time schedule for the project and answers to frequently asked questions about Project POWER. (YLB)
