This handbook is designed to assist educators in establishing a project that uses volunteers as tutors in an adult education program. It is based on the experiences of a model project conducted by the State College Area School using Kiwanis volunteers. A section on recruitment/publicity lists the activities conducted and resulting publicity items. Section 2 on orientation, visitation, and training provides a list of activities in phases I and II as well as orientation and training formats suitable for adaptation, an evaluation form, and sample tutor schedule. Section 3 concerns tutor enrichment. It contains notes from informal support night sessions at which tutors shared experiences and a bibliography of materials made available to tutors. Evaluation is the focus of section 4. It summarizes evaluation activities in phases I and II and provides tutor/mentor and student evaluation instruments from both phases. A final listing cites activities, outcomes, and benefits from continuation of the State College Area School District project. (YLB)
