Koehler, C. Russell
Designed for volunteer coordinators in Olympic College's Adult Education Volunteer Classroom Assistant Project, this handbook provides a rationale for each of the coordinators' responsibilities and details procedures for carrying out these functions. Section I provides an overview of the role of the volunteer coordinators, who are responsible for recruiting, training, employing, supervising, and rewarding classroom volunteers in Adult Basic Education (ABE) and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Section II focuses on volunteer recruitment, including information on maintaining mailing lists; samples of help wanted ads, news releases, posters, leaflets, letters soliciting volunteers from teacher education and foreign language departments and individual offices and agencies, and memos to instructors and volunteers; and a questionnaire to determine volunteers' reactions to the project. Section III contains information and forms pertaining to volunteer employment, covering application, interview, assessment, and placement procedures. Section IV contains a complete volunteer orientation guide, which includes handouts, information to be covered, exercises, discussion questions, and an evaluation sheet. In section V, information and sample forms are provided detailing the coordinators' responsibilities for volunteer supervision and maintenance of records. Section VI examines procedures for program evaluation. Finally, sections VII and VIII look at the needs for volunteer recognition and staff development. Recruitment mailing lists are appended. (AYC)
