Katimavik Field Staff Manual = Katimavik Manuel du Personnel D'Encadrement. Revised Edition.
OPCAN, Montreal (Quebec).
Based upon accumulated field staff experience from years past, the bilingual manual is designed to be used on both a day-to-day basis as needs present themselves and for long-term planning by staff of Katimavik, a nine-month volunteer community service and learning program for 17 to 21-year-old Canadian youth. The manual is divided into three major sections. Section A, Basic Functions, relates to the daily concerns of group living, providing guidelines for shelter, transportation, community involvement, communication, budgeting, personal conduct, life skills, and first aid. Section B examines how objectives for each of the eight action-based learning programs (work skills, nutrition, second language learning, billeting, socio-cultural activities, environment and appropriate technology, active leisure, and international awareness) can be integrated in a practical way with rotational guidelines. Section C outlines specific "must do,""should do," and "could do" ideas and approaches for small group management to help participants receive and assimilate information, make decisions, set goals, plan and organize activities, monitor results, and evaluate outcomes. This section includes group development models, analysis checklists, feedback techniques, motivational activities, stress management strategies, and structured exercises for group problem solving.
