Community Resource Development. A Community Education Guidebook.
Cassidy, Maureen; Cassidy, Frank
This book is intended as a practical guidebook for those involved in continuing education, in particular, and for the boards and staff of nonprofit organizations and community groups, in general. It is designed to show these individuals how to develop community resources when additional support is needed for community education. Specific guidelines are included on the processes and techniques necessary to gain additional support from other agencies and groups for community education projects in British Columbia. Chapter 1 discusses community resource development. The next five chapters cover these aspects: (1) organizing for community resource development, (2) developing a project, (3) finding where the resources are, (4) constructing a proposal asking for support, and (5) receiving support. Additional titles to read or places to write for more detail on the topics are recommended. Canadian sources are used wherever possible; American sources (general works) are included, where appropriate. Illustrative charts and an index are provided. (YLB)
